About Recovery Center at Gresham

The Recovery Center at Gresham aims to divert individuals from state hospitals, avoiding unnecessary admissions,  stabilize psychiatric symptoms that prevent people from being placed in less restrictive environments,reduce length of stay relative to state hospital stays, and  discharge residents into community placements and lower levels of care rather than state hospitals. As the program has grown and evolved, it has expanded its focus on increasing resident engagement in the program, while increasing resident awareness of the recovery process, leading the way in making mental health services in Oregon more recovery-based, and continuing to collaborate with the State of Oregon to provide additional services to state residents.
