We are CODA. We are a not-for-profit, research-focused behavioral health agency and the oldest opioid-addiction treatment facility in Oregon. We help adult clients whose health and quality of life are compromised by alcohol, drugs and mental health challenges through compassionate, evidence-based care. Our comprehensive network of programs allow us to treat all forms of addiction at all levels of recovery through detoxification, residential, and outpatient care. We value our amazing employees and show it with excellent benefits, a supportive company culture and the opportunity to be part of a best-in-class research department.
The sentence that begins our Mission & Vision statement and which appears in much of our material describes our agency both literally and philosophically:
CODA: “Building health and recovery through compassionate, evidence-based care.”
This means that our mission is to provide patient-centered care delivered by people who listen with respect and who stay with patients all along the road to recovery and into a life of health and stability.
When we say “evidence-based” care, we are promising that the treatment we provide is based on sound science and research, and that we will use the best practices available in behavioral healthcare.
CODA offers outpatient services in Portland, Clackamas, Gresham, Hillsboro and Tigard, where patients meet with counselors, attend groups, and if their health situation, needs and choices call for it, they receive medication to block cravings and help prevent relapse. CODA also works with people who struggle with both mental illness and substance use.
We offer residential programs for men in Tigard and Gresham, and for women with small children in Gresham.
CODA has long provided gender-specific residential treatment, including a program in Gresham for women and their young children, and programs for men in Gresham and Tigard.
Our transitional Stepping Stones housing in Washington County serves women in recovery being reunited with children who had been in foster care.
CODA’s Research Program has collaborated with Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), Dartmouth College, University of Pittsburgh, University of Washington, Virginia Commonwealth University, Kaiser Permanente, and other institutions on research funded by National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and other foundations and agencies.
