Oregon Trail Recovery Process

What follows is a detailed outline of the Recovery Process associated with Oregon Trail Recovery Program which can be up to 6 months long. There is an additional option for a 3-month continuum of care (totaling 9 months).  A three-month verbal commitment to the program is required.

We focus on helping men and women build new lives in recovery, and help them learn to become self-sustaining, productive members of society. Our focus is founded on a solution through multiple avenues of support that in turn aid an individual to begin and endure life’s challenges. From intake to graduation, individuals are taught valuable life skills, which help them find success and learn to overcome obstacles while living in a positive and supportive environment.


Men and women seeking treatment in our program start their journey by first having the courage to pick up the phone. An over-the-phone assessment is done with each person to find out what level of care is needed. Oregon Trail Recovery looks to help put people in the right place by giving them the best possible chance of achieving long-term recovery. After a decision is made by both the inquiring individual and the staff member, we move towards looking at payment. Payment of treatment can include either insurance or cash pay.


New clients are picked up by a staff member of Oregon Trail Recovery and the journey to a new way of living begins. Upon arrival to one of our program houses,  the client will be given a tour of the house, which includes the bedroom in which they will find their sleeping arrangements (bedding included). Afterward, a search of the client’s belongings is conducted by staff to ensure that they are not in possession of any harmful substances which would compromise our clean and sober environment.

If the client has any prescribed, non-narcotic medications, they will be placed in the safe by the House Manager, who will dispense them appropriately at a scheduled time. 

Other unapproved items such as knives, tasers and pepper spray will be confiscated upon search of person and possessions. These items will be kept securely locked away and will be returned to the client upon completion of the program.
