About Oregon Recovers

Oregon Recovers is an inclusive statewide coalition comprised of people in recovery–and their friends and family—uniting to transform Oregon healthcare to ensure world-class prevention, treatment, and recovery support services for Oregonians suffering from the disease of addiction.

Since launching a little over a year ago, Oregon Recovers has experienced numerous legislative and policy victories including the passing of HB 4137 and HB 4143, Governor Brown declaring addiction a public health crisis in the state of Oregon, and the adoption of our strategic framework by the Alcohol and Drug Policy Commission as the basis for their Strategic Plan to address the addiction crisis.

We most recently organized the Walk for Recovery, first benefit walk for addiction recovery in Oregon, in which we raised over $130,000 and had a turnout of over 800 participants.

Oregon Recovers is an equal opportunity employer. We’re also an organization that’s guided by people in recovery, who are also people of color, women, immigrants, queer people, and working-class people. We eagerly invite people in recovery, people of color, Native American and Indigenous people, immigrants, women, gender nonconforming people, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and other underrepresented and marginalized communities to apply for all open positions at Oregon Recovers.
