Residential TreatmentResidential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
12-StepThe term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

- Paul WatsonPortland City DirectorThe needs of our community are unique as we face alarming rates of unemployment, homelessness and people dying from the epidemic of drugs and alcohol. The numbers of high school dropouts and victims of human trafficking are also unacceptably high. To add to these challenges, recent cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (often referred to as food stamps) have put the elderly and the unemployed at risk of hunger. The goal to help everyone in need in our community might sound like an impossible task but that is what God has called us to do, at Cityteam, and nothing is impossible with Him. We have been blessed to witness countless lives changed.
