Oregon to launch behavioral health treatment housing

The state of Oregon purchased a building in Portland to offer treatment and temporary housing for people with substance use disorders.

The purchase was made in collaboration between the state, city, Multnomah County and Central City Concern, a nonprofit organization caring for adults and families in the city, according to a Jan. 3 news release from Gov. Tina Kotek's office. 

CCC submitted a bid for the building that was later accepted by the seller, which included $6 million from the Oregon Health Authority, $6.25 million from Multnomah County, $2 million from the city of Portland and $3 million from the nonprofit itself.

Once renovations are completed, the building is expected to offer more than 70 beds for a substance use disorders and behavioral health residential treatment program, in addition to between 30 and 35 transitional housing beds and outpatient services, the release said.
