About the center: The Anne Deacon Center for Hope is a 32-bed treatment unit that provides mental health stabilization and detox stabilization for adults in Whatcom County and the North Sound Region. The center opened two years ago, replacing the old Whatcom County crisis stabilization center with expanded services and double the capacity of the previous facility. Services offered at the Anne Deacon Center for Hope are provided by Compass Health and Pioneer Human Services.
