Exclusive

After he tried to dodge me TODAY, I confronted Dr. Dat Nguyen, owner of building that could be home to controversial #Lynnwood OPIOID CLINIC. Business owners in area including his tenant are asking Nguyen to reconsider deal with Acadia Healthcare.

Massive Protest

After multiple pleas with @WADeptHealth, Acadia Healthcare, and even City of #Lynnwood, coalition of neighbors and community stakeholders are protesting on Saturday. This will be one of many according to organizers. They are promising a PR nightmare.

Latest from DOH

@WADeptHealth sent out response to community concerns over proposed #Lynnwood OPIOID CLINIC that would be few hundred feet from Alderwood Boys & Girls Club. DOH being put on BLAST by neighbors. @LynnwoodTimes about to drop more details!

Major Support

Protest organizers say @KCGOP, #Lynnwood Council Members, and other allies are mobilizing against OPIOID CLINIC. But even @WADeptHealth, Acadia Healthcare, and those advocating for clinic like @laurendavisWA have been invited to rally. Unclear if they will show.
