ABOUT THE ANTI 27 CLUB:
We are here to address the cultural role drugs and alcohol play in the music industry plus provide resources for those looking to make a change in their own substance use. The Anti 27 Club is a drug and alcohol harm reduction public health campaign presented by Musicians Access to Sustainable Healthcare (SMASH) and Public Health King County.
At SMASH, our mission is to keep local musicians healthy. It is free to be a member. SMASH is not health insurance, and you still qualify for membership even if you have insurance. SMASH helps musicians stay healthy by providing access to free and low-cost medical, dental, and mental health services to low- and limited-income working musicians and music teachers living in King, Snohomish, Pierce, Mason, Kitsap or Thurston counties who perform, record, teach or compose music, plus provide support for navigating the complicated and frustrating healthcare system.
