September is National Recovery Month, an important time to remind people that getting and staying sober is not simply a matter of willpower. Drug addiction, also called substance use disorder, is a disease that affects the brain. Lin Taylor, PhD, manager of MCC’s Medically Assisted Treatment Program, explains more about this important issue.

We love a parade! #teamMCC had a blast at the Paul Bunyan Days parade. We even won the first place prize in the Original/Restored category!
It was so fun to be together, hand out gifts to the crowd, and be part of this great local tradition. We were both humbled and delighted by the cheering and applause.
This year, we rode in style in a vintage firetruck, decorated by our staff and piloted by Rich Jung, RN (and volunteer fireman). It was a day we’ll never forget!

Every year, we survey our patients to find out how we’re doing, and we were happy to learn that our patients appreciate our efforts and the care they get at MCC.
Overall, our patients rated us 9.3 out of 10, and 98% of our patients would recommend MCC to their family and friends. Some of the comments we received were:
“You guys are great and we’re lucky to have you on the coast!”
“Exceed my expectations, every appointment I’ve had here always felt comfortable. Always well informed. Best staff. really makes a difference. Never had a bad experience here. Thank you!”
“Everyone was amazing! Thank you so much for your kindness, knowledge thoughtfulness. Your team rally went above and beyond.”
