Provide and cultivate an atmosphere of recovery where all young people can overcome drug addiction and alcoholism through social interactions with recovery communities and mentor services.
Bottom Line for Portland
4D provides addiction recovery to 600 youth every month. Of them, most improve their housing and employment, 20 percent go to college, and fewer than 10 percent commit new crimes.
“I started working with a 4D mentor while I was pregnant in drug treatment. They stuck with me through the pregnancy and supported me after I left treatment, which really made the difference in my recovery. Now, I am a recovery mentor at 4D, and I have the privilege of helping other young women find the gift of recovery.”
