Mental Health in Puyallup

Puyallup and Pierce County are both affected by the drug epidemic sweeping the country. Between 2008 and 2014, the number of heroin-related fatalities in the county increased by 100%. In 2015, the county experienced 10.2 opioid-related deaths for every 100,000 people. This was slightly higher than the rate for Washington state (9.8 per 100,000).
