Following a multi-year planning and development process, we are excited to replace our current website on September 26 with a new design that will serve as a digital gateway to a wide variety of public services and information.

How to get help if you live in Washington County:

If you have a provider, please contact them first for support. While some offices may be closed during COVID-19, most providers are still offering telephone support to their enrolled clients. They know you best and can provide follow-up care. 

Hawthorn is available if you do not have a provider or need help sooner than your provider can offer. Appointments are not necessary. It is helpful to call ahead so staff can help you decide the best option for care. Please call our crisis line at 503-291-9111 for assistance. 

If you need help during hours that the Hawthorn Walk-In Center is closed, please call the 24-hour Washington County Crisis Line at 503-291-9111.

All ages are welcome at the center. A special family waiting area is available for young children or youth. Larger counseling rooms can accommodate family and friends.
