These funds are for mentoring in Washington, Clackamas and Multnomah Counties
Oregon Health Authority awarded PHOENIX funds to continue our mentor work in Washington and Clackamas counties. The legislature approved these funds after voters passed Ballot Measure 110 in November 2020. M110 was designed to treat addiction as a health issue rather than a criminal issue. The funds are for opening many more sites across the state to make treatment more accessible to those in need. All sites will center around a BHRN (Behavioral Health Resource Network). These are groups of nonprofits and other treatment facilities – or CBOs (Community-Based Organizations) – that work together to address the specific needs of each person. Some large CBOs will offer multiple services. Small CBOs – like PHOENIX – will offer more limited services. PHOENIX will continue to offer Peer Support, Mentoring, and Recovery Services.
