Work continues at the didgwalic Wellness Center, a community health center established by the Swinomish Tribe to combat the opioid epidemic in Skagit County and the surrounding area. The March’s Point facility is described as “a comprehensive treatment facility, providing counseling, support groups, medication assisted therapy, general primary care, screening, and more. The staff at didgwalic also provide support services to eliminate barriers to treatment, including onsite childcare and shuttle services.” General contractor is Quantum Construction.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
