Building health and recovery through compassionate, evidence-based care
Founded in 1969, CODA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) dedicated to treating people whose health and quality of life are compromised by alcohol and drugs. We do so through patient-centered care, partnerships with other healthcare providers and community partners, and through advocacy for effective public policy.
What we do
CODA, a treatment provider for substance use disorders, is the oldest opioid addiction treatment program in Oregon. We help people start and sustain their journey to recovery. We offer hope and healing.
We believe in quality care that may include medicine
We know that patients are most likely to succeed in recovery when they receive multidisciplinary care. That includes a supportive community as well as behavioral health and medication. We believe in a medical approach that includes the use of medications such as methadone and buprenorphine/naloxone (often called Suboxone®), in combination with case management, individual, and group therapy.
We are driven by science
Our science-driven approach has been proven to help patients in their recovery. We treat all forms of addiction and offer detoxification, residential, and outpatient treatment services. We offer 15 programs across Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties.
Who we treat
We accept patients who:
- Are new to recovery
- Have tried recovery before and relapsed
- Are struggling with multiple substances
- Want to explore using medications, such as buprenorphine/naloxone, often called Suboxone®
- Are pregnant or nursing
- Are struggling to maintain their jobs, relationships, and housing
- Need our help in establishing a safe, stable support network
A statewide issue.
Illicit drug use in Oregon exceeds the national average. As of 2018, Oregon was sixth in the nation for rates of substance use disorder.
A constant calamity.
Five Oregonians die each day due to alcohol, and we lose one Oregonian daily to drug overdose.
A deadly epidemic.
In 2016, opioids killed more people than car crashes did.
Recovery is possible.
23 million adults in the US are in long-term recovery from addiction.
We’re ready to help.
In 2018, CODA served nearly 5,000 patients residing in the tri-county area.
