Mission & Philosophy

Fora Health provides treatment, care and advocacy for all who are affected by substance use disorder.

We envision communities where every person affected by substance use disorder has access to the support needed to emerge from this disease. Where healthcare systems become advocates for hope. Where stigma ceases to exist.

Fora Health, formerly known as De Paul Treatment Centers, is one of Oregon’s oldest, largest and most respected non-profit treatment centers providing treatment for substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders. In our nearly 50-year history, we have helped more than 55,000 individuals change their relationship to drugs and alcohol. Fora Health receives one of the highest levels of accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and has held this designation since 2001.

Our Care Philosophy

Fora Health takes a trauma-informed, evidence-based approach to the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. We offer a full continuum of care services practiced by expert staff, allowing our patients to easily transition between levels of care. By providing this full continuum of care, Fora Health empowers our staff and patients to develop personalized care plans that meet each person’s unique, long-term needs and build the relationships and trust that lead to successful treatment outcomes. This includes access to specialty services proven to improve outcomes such as Mental Health Services and Dual Diagnosis Treatment, medications, family therapy, and peer recovery mentor services. We believe everyone has the innate ability to heal and recover, and we have the experience to walk alongside our patients and their families every step of the way.

Fora Health believes in practicing radical kindness. We are committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment of respect and open communication. We are dedicated to culturally responsive programming and attitudes – celebrating the strengths everyone brings to the table. Fora Health works with a network of community partners to tap into a wealth of local resources to support patients and their families throughout their recovery journey and beyond. With the help of our patients and our community partners, we continue to learn and grow.
