Fora Health Treatment & Recovery
Fora Health provides treatment, care, and advocacy for all who are affected by substance use disorder.
Bottom Line for Portland
1 in 10 Oregonians have a substance use disorder, yet Oregon ranks 48th nationally for access to treatment, with an estimated 95% of those in need unable to access care. The anxiety and isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the situation, and overdose rates increased more than 60% in 2020 compared to the previous year. Fora Health is working to change that. 81% of the people we serve experience incomes below the federal poverty line and donations help us cover funding gaps left by public insurance and allow us to deepen investment in programs that increase access to treatment and create pathways to care where they are needed most.
Fora health gave me a safe environment where I could truly let my guard down and learn a different and better way of living. If it wasn’t for Fora Health, I wouldn’t be the woman I am today, a woman I love and respect. -Erin, Former Residential Client
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Fora Health remains committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion by addressing disparities that prevent the implementation of just and equitable care to marginalized communities. As an organization, we continue to listen and take action to bring about change and work diligently to integrate cultural responsiveness into our organization. The time for change is now and uncomfortable times call for uncomfortable conversations. Fora Health is steadfast on advancing the narrative through listening to historically neglected communities, by engaging in bold dialogue, and taking tangible action.
