Oregon, The Beaver State, produces 99% of the nation’s hazelnuts and its Douglas firs stretch out as far as the eye can see. A state known for its compassion and social awareness, its state motto, “she flies with her own wings” exemplifies the pioneer spirit of independence and rising above circumstance.

Oregon also leads the US in the production, consumption and exportation of craft beer. The greater Portland area alone has 170 breweries. While recovery from alcohol can be difficult anywhere, the culture and economy largely revolve around alcohol in many areas can make it particularly difficult for alcohol abusers to seek help and remain on the recovery path.

Oregon Addiction Statistics

  • 12.6% of youth report using illegal drugs
  • 15.5% of teens state that they binge drink
  • 66.7% of youth see no harm in drinking 5+ alcoholic beverages once to twice a week
  • 15 thousand adolescents report taking non-medical painkillers
  • Nearly 300 thousand Oregonians are dependent on or abuse alcohol
  • Nearly 100 thousand are dependent or abusing illegal drugs

And yet, alarmingly,

  • Only 8% of alcohol abusers and 10.9% of drug abusers get treatment each year

Those who go untreated continue on their paths of self-destruction and, in their wakes, lie the damage done to families, friends and communities. Addicted individuals need treatment to reclaim their lives from the devastating effects of their addictions. Fortunately, there are options within the state to help individuals and families recover from addictions. Here are a few options in the state of Oregon.
