At Fora Health, Dr. Hartley is responsible for directing Fora’s medically managed withdrawal unit, a 24-bed inpatient acute stabilization program that manages withdrawal from alcohol, opioids, benzodiazepines, and stimulants. Additionally, she works on the development of complementary medical services at Fora, including acupuncture, chiropractic, qigong, yoga, nutrition, and more. Dr. Hartley also leads Fora’s medical learners program that brings trainees, including fellows, residents, and nursing students, to Fora to gain experience in substance use treatment.

In addition to being named a Saint, Dr. Hartley was also recently recognized as a Top Doctor in Addiction Medicine in Portland Monthly’s 20th annual list of the metro area’s top medical providers, as chosen by their peers.
