Who This Serves: People, 18 years or older, with substance use disorders throughout Samaritan’s service area.
What: Establish a 16-bed Samaritan Treatment & Recovery Services facility in Lincoln County to provide residential treatment and intensive outpatient programs, including group and individual therapy, medication-assisted treatment and peer-delivered services.
Where: The program will be located in Newport within short driving distance of Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital.
When: Completion of the facility is expected in summer 2024. Residential services will be offered 24 hours a day, seven days per week. Outpatient services are offered Monday through Friday, including evening sessions.
Why: Oregon ranks second in the nation for substance use disorder and 50th in access to treatment. Inpatient treatment is a critical first step in the recovery process for many individuals, but there are currently no inpatient services in Lincoln County, and limited outpatient services available.
Campaign Goal: $10.1 million.
