Recovery Center at Woodburn
1605 East Lincoln Road
Woodburn, Oregon 97071
For many people with serious mental illness, it is hard to believe in a hopeful future, where recovery is possible and goals are within reach. The challenges they face in the community, in life, and in traditional systems of care are daunting - and the resources to overcome these challenges are few.
The Recovery Center @ Woodburn (WRC) exists to help these individuals build skills, reclaim hope, and feel supported on their journeys of recovery. WRC offers a new clinical approach, one that is dramatically different than the traditional sub-acute locked facility. The program embraces the recovery philosophy at all levels instead of focusing primarily on symptom and behavior management. Recovery is woven into and defines every aspect of the program, from assessments and interventions, to the resident information system, to the selection of staff, and the overall resident experience.

The Recovery Center @ Woodburn strives to provide residents with the skills they need to attain the goals they choose. In this environment, residents begin a learning process that helps them make effective choices, reduce the amount of harm in their lives and increase their personal strengths. When residents are enrolled at WRC, they are transitioning from the Oregon State Hospital and it is a time of great excitement and hope having met the stringent criteria for admission. WRC begins to help a new resident to think of themselves as people that can make a contribution to the world around them. We offer them the opportunity to live differently, according to their own goals, dreams, and hopes. It is a unique and empowering learning environment built on a belief in recovery. WRC embraces the core concepts of learning, skill development, power awareness, cultural awareness, spiritual acknowledgment, personal choice, and personal responsibility in the recovery process. In this environment, residents have the opportunity to feel better about themselves and take the first steps on the journey of recovery.
