About Us

Oregon Trail Recovery, LLC is a 6-month intensive outpatient program for individuals struggling with substance abuse. It is asked that new clients make a 3-month verbal commitment up front, as we look to engage a client for at least this amount of time. We work with individuals who have completed inpatient treatment or medical detoxification and who are looking to transition back into everyday life. We provide partial hospitalization (day treatment), intensive outpatient, and outpatient programming. Each client will also have one hour of individual counseling per week. We are a 12-Step based program, which means that we require clients to attend 12-step meetings and actively work with a sponsor. We work with individuals to help them break the hold of addiction and grow as an individual; physically, mentally, and spiritually. We help them become well-rounded people through living a life of recovery and developing a drug-free lifestyle.


The first phase of the program consists of 20 hours of group therapy per week, which continues until the client starts working or attending school. Once they regularly engage in 1 of these 2 activities, the client is released from morning group and steps down to five-night groups per week, which is our intensive outpatient level of care. Upon primary counselor’s approval, clients may also have the option to become involved with community-based service or volunteer work. The client will continue with their weekly 1-on-1 sessions and immersion in a 12-step program as well as attending their regularly scheduled group therapy sessions. Over the course of the following months of treatment, the client will step down to fewer and fewer hours of therapeutic involvement, as deemed appropriate by our clinical team. Should a client stay in the program for 6 months, they eventually step down to the outpatient level of care, which consists of one group per week as well as weekly individual therapy. After the sixth month has been completed, the client is offered a continuum level of care which can exceed upwards to an additional 3 months (totaling 9 months). While they would not stay in one of our program houses during this time, they would still be able to attend one group session a week as well as a one-on-one therapy session with their primary counselor.


Oregon Trail Recovery assists clients in managing their finances by holding funds in dedicated accounts with Chase Bank. Clients are allowed an allowance of 20 dollars at any time and are able to buy higher priced items, with authorization from staff. All transactions are documented and monitored closely by Oregon Trail Recovery staff.


Clients reside in our structured sober living homes, in which they live with a group of peers and a live-in staff member of Oregon Trail Recovery. All of the clients’ food is provided for them, which is covered by their monthly rent fee and/or initial enrollment fee. High use items and amenities such as laundry soap, cleaning supplies, bus pass for public transport, and all adventures and equipment for the adventure are included. Clients have the ability to come to Oregon Trail Recovery and experience these advantages, that many times are not offered in typical aftercare programs. We work with all private health insurance companies (PPO) and also offer a cash pay option to be utilized for privacy purposes. Clients are responsible for their own co-pays for medications, medical appointments and any other appointments including dentist or optometrist visits. Clients are permitted to take non-narcotic, prescribed medication while at Oregon Trail Recovery, LLC. Medications are monitored, but not distributed, by the management staff.


The transitional living structure of Oregon Trail Recovery, LLC. encourages the client to not only become involved with their recovery but to become involved with their new found life. This includes discovering new stimulating and healthy activities such as hiking in one of the local nature trails and parks accessible by public transit in the greater Portland area, exploring the local museums such as OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industries), and enriching themselves in the art and culture of the Pacific Northwest all while taking in its gorgeous, natural splendor. Portland is also home to one of the largest recovery communities in the United States, with almost 700 twelve step meetings and other recovery related support meetings and events occurring weekly.  In fact, most of our clients find themselves quite at home in Portland and often find themselves relocating.


We at Oregon Trail Recovery, LLC. are fully committed to making our program your last treatment experience. Our dedicated team of addiction treatment specialists will be there step by step to educate and empower each individual client with strength, hope and caring to inspire them to obtain a life they thought could never have; clean, sober, happy, joyous, and free.
