This proposal seeks to enhance and expand the current addictions continuum of care, expanding day treatment and intensive outpatient capacity, and add aftercare, peer mentors and housing for clients leaving residential.

Budget Range: $2 - 5 million

Status: Partially implemented
This was not a priority selected by the Steering Committee or funded by the County. However, DCJ does manage a contract for day treatment and supported housing for individuals living downtown who are considered chronic offenders. This program is funded by the City of Portland and is in collaboration with Portland Police, Volunteer of America, Central City Concern, Department of Community Justice, the District Attorney’s Office and a variety of other non-profit agencies. Forty two men can receive alcohol and drug treatment through the day treatment center operated by VOA. Twelve of the forty two men can also live in VOA housing as they receive treatment. This program does not have all of the components listed in this proposal. Because of a different yet similar design the costs associated are different than this proposal.
