Mission Hospital McDowell is committed to improving more lives in more ways. We are proud to partner with the McDowell County Sheriff, Marion Police Department, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation (NCSBI) to help combat the misuse of opioids. Current figures support the claim that more people die from complications related to opioid misuse and opioid use disorder than all other drugs combined.
