Ideal Option, which provides evidence-based treatment for addiction to opioids, alcohol, meth, and other substances, has opened a clinic in Puyallup, Washington. Located outside of Tacoma, it is the organization’s first clinic in Pierce County, Washington. State data indicates that about 78% of Medicaid beneficiaries in Pierce County who have opioid use disorder are not receiving treatment.
“We have seen more than 500 hundred patients in our south King County locations who have traveled from the Puyallup area, and that number is only going to increase as the pandemic winds down,” stated Tim Kilgallon chief executive officer of Ideal Option. “Opening a location in Puyallup will make it much easier for our patients who live in Pierce County to stay in recovery and help many more patients start their recovery journey.”
Headquartered in Kennewick, Washington, Ideal Option was founded in 2012 and has since helped nearly 45,000 patients through a network of 67 office-based medication-assisted treatment (MAT) clinics across 10 states. With a mission to serve under-served communities, Ideal Option accepts all forms of insurance including Medicaid and Medicare and financial assistance and payment plans are available. Ideal Option’s team of medical professionals carry certifications in Addiction and Emergency Medicine, Internal, OB/GYN, and Family Medicine, among other specialties. The company also employs social workers, caseworkers, counselors, and mental health professionals.
