The Health Resources and Services Administration recently invested $203 million in health centers and rural communities to help fight the overwhelming opioid epidemic. Bethel Family Clinic has received a portion of that funding and has recently hired substance abuse counselor, Dennis Raines. His position will offer alcohol and drug use assessments, Level I.0 outpatient services for substance abuse. He will also be providing alcohol/drug/bullying prevention and awareness presentations in village communities and in schools in the Yukon Kuskokwim delta region at no cost. Our hope is to combat the opiod epidemic through education, treatment and support.
