In June 2016, Fora Health/De Paul Treatment Centers’ Board of Directors and leadership embarked on a visionary journey to design and build a new and innovative drug and alcohol addiction treatment center and community resource that would be unique in the State of Oregon. Inspired by our 40-plus year legacy of providing Oregonians with exceptional, evidenced-based care, we assembled a best-in-class project team and went to work bringing our vision to life.
Fast-forward now to 2021, and we are thrilled to move into our space in November. The project is much more than a building, it is the embodiment of hope and healing and will significantly increase our patient capacity at a time when our community needs us more than ever as we begin to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and the dramatic increase in mental health and substance use disorder we are experiencing.

Situated in the Gateway District of East Portland – adjacent to Adventist Health and with regional transit options in close proximity – the new facility will improve and expand access to treatment for a high need area, as well as individuals and families from across the state.
The new two-story 53,000 sq. ft. facility, designed by Holst Architecture, sits on 3.4 acres of therapeutically planned green space. The new treatment center has been designed using trauma-informed principles and is purpose built to provide holistic care for substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. Characterized by ample natural light, the facility will offer patients the opportunity to engage in an approach to healing that cultivates hope despite years of illness and trauma. The new facility’s contemporary design evokes calm and respite in a beautiful setting that elevates the patient and staff experience and supports compassionate care. As part of our commitment to whole person care, the campus also includes amenities such as fitness center, art studio, patient resource center, recreation court, and the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Therapy Gardens.
This project is transformational for Fora Health/De Paul and for addiction treatment in Oregon. The programs offered will include the full continuum of care for adults – withdrawal management, residential treatment, and outpatient services – and community gathering spaces for education, assembly, and celebration.
The facility will deliver treatment services to over 5,100 individuals and their families a year and reach an additional 5,300 individuals through community education programs.
