Treatment and Services
Washington County’s Department of Health and Human Services assures the delivery of chemical dependency and problem gambling treatment services for county residents. We contract with a number of addiction treatment providers in the community, located geographically throughout the county, to provide direct treatment services. WCHHS, in partnership with the state of Oregon, provides funding for chemical dependency and gambling treatment services. Cost will not be a barrier to getting help.
Alcohol and drug abuse and dependence is an issue for about 30,000 Washington County residents. For each one of them, six to twelve others are affected, including family, friends and co-workers.
Gambling has become part of the Oregon landscape, culture and economy. Oregon boasts more forms of legalized gambling and offers easier access to gambling than most other states. Most people do not have any problems associated with gambling, but a growing number do.
If you or someone you love is in need of addiction services, please take a moment to review the services listed. In response to Washington County’s increasingly diverse population, some treatment providers are offering bilingual and bicultural services as well.
