“I love the structure here. I had been at another treatment center and if I hadn't come to De Paul from there I'm not sure I would have made it. I love all of the staff here, and have learned the skills I feel that I will need to succeed.” – former residential client
We offer the following programs for adults, youth, and families:
- Residential- clients live onsite and have access to services 24/7
- Outpatient- clients live at home but come to DP for treatment one or more times per week, depending on individual need
- Family therapy- individual or group sessions with a family therapist
Adult clients (18 and over) are treated at our downtown Portland facility or in Hillsboro. Youth clients, ages 13-18, are treated at our Youth & Family Center in NE Portland. All three DP locations also provide treatment for co-occurring mental health issues.
All programs begin with an assessment that enables us to recommend the appropriate level of care for each individual client. Treatment levels are based on ASAM PPC II-R criteria.
Every client at DP creates an individual treatment plan that is tailored to his/her specific needs and goals. Counselors work closely with clients to ensure that progress is made. DP uses practices that are evidence based, meaning they have research to support their effectiveness.
