To reduce the risk of an opiate overdose:
- KNOW YOUR TOLERANCE
Use precautions if you haven’t used for a while (e.g. jail, detox, hospital, or you just cut back yourself). Tolerance levels drop rapidly during a break in use.
- DON’T MIX DRUGS
Mixing heroin with other drugs like alcohol, methadone, and benzos, increases the risk of overdose. Plus, the content and purity of street drugs is often unpredictable.
- DON’T USE ALONE
While using alone isn’t necessarily a cause of overdose, it increases the chance of fatally overdosing because no one is available to call for help.
IF YOU THINK SOMEONE IS EXPERIENCING AN OVERDOSE, DIAL 911 IMMEDIATELY!
The Reduced Supervision Team (RST) provides reduced direction and resources to offenders who have been assessed as low risk to re-offend. RST’s focus is tracking supervision to completion, monitoring new criminal activity, and responding to violations with an array of sanctions, including transfer to more intensive supervision. An offender on supervision to RST is not normally required to see a supervising officer, but must report any changes in address or employment; report any arrests, receive permission for out-of-state travel, and complete probation supervision conditions including payment of restitution. Under RST, offenders are more reliant on their own ability to cease criminal activities and complete supervision. Read More

Offender Supervision Information
The Reduced Supervision Team (RST) is a formal Probation/Parole/Post-Prison Supervision (PPS) office that tracks your formal supervision to completion.
What makes this Probation/Parole/PPS different from traditional Probation/Parole/PPS is that you are not required to see a Probation/Parole Officer (PPO). You are required to report any changes in your address or your employment, and submit a request for all out of state travel permits.
During your intake process or with your former PPO, your conditions of supervision were explained to you and you signed that you understood the conditions ordered. It is your responsibility to complete the conditions of supervision. You must keep any appointment(s) that was scheduled for you and/or make appointments yourself using the phone numbers you were provided.
Please refer to Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.
Requesting a Travel Permit
When you want/need to leave the State of Oregon, you must have permission from a PPO.
- All fees (court fees/supervision fees) must be current unless a PPO makes an exception.
- Give at least ten (10) days advanced notice (except emergencies).
Updating Address, Employment Information
If you are moving, or there are any changes to your employment, you must report that to the RST office within 48 hours.
