Chief Executive Officer
Devarshi Bajpai began his career in the addiction field as an addiction counselor with Fora Health (then De Paul Treatment Centers) in 1994. His career progression since then includes several pivotal leadership roles, with his most recent position being the Behavioral Health Director for the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC). During his tenure at the DOC, Bajpai successfully secured $9 million in funding to establish new behavioral health services, benefiting nearly one-third of Oregon’s individuals in custody.
Before joining the DOC, Bajpai served as the Director of Clinical Behavioral Health with CareOregon and as the Medicaid and Addictions Services Manager for Multnomah County. Bajpai’s collaborative approach to working with providers, payors, and patients and his unwavering commitment to a recovery-oriented system of care have substantially strengthened the provider community and positively impacted those seeking addiction treatment.
Bajpai’s extensive contributions include work with the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission. While there, he participated in Governor Ted Kulongoski’s Methamphetamine Task Force and helped to expand drug courts and prisoner reentry programs statewide. Bajpai has also served on the boards of the Mental Health & Addiction Certification Board of Oregon, Dual Diagnosis Anonymous of Oregon, NAADAC Certification Commission, and Oregon Recovers.
Bajpai holds his bachelor’s degree in human development from Warner Pacific College and earned his MBA from George Fox University. He will assume his position as CEO at Fora Health on November 20, 2023.
