Washington County is following the new health and safety framework announced by Governor Kate Brown. Although essential functions are still being provided throughout the organization, Washington County officials are taking immediate actions to limit person-to-person appearances among staff and the public unless absolutely necessary.
In following this guidance, the lobby to Washington County Behavioral Health is closed to the public with onsite services available by appointment only. The public is urged to access county services through telephone, email, webpages or other electronic means.
The majority of staff continue to work regular business hours remotely and can provide support through phone calls or video appointments. The public is encouraged to email through the Addictions Services webpage or call 503-846-4528 during regular business hours for assistance.
