ABOUT PROVIDENCE SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT – PORTLAND

Part of Providence Health & Services, a nonprofit network of hospitals and care providers in Oregon and Southwest Washington, Providence Medical Center in Portland offers multiple levels of treatment for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. The medical center provides short-term inpatient care, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), and outpatient programs (including one for DUI offenders). Medically monitored detoxification services are also available.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to the center’s website, if necessary, patients undergo detoxification and short-term inpatient care before beginning less-intensive levels of treatment. Providence utilizes medications to alleviate the severity of withdrawal symptoms and motivational interviewing techniques to help patients set goals for recovery.

During inpatient care, patients participate in group therapy and family treatment groups. Once a patient is stabilized, a case manager forms a continuing care plan, which may include a referral to day treatment or Providence’s outpatient programs. The typical length of detox and inpatient care is five days.

The partial hospitalization program (PHP) involves eight hours of daily programming. Patients participate in educational classes on relapse prevention and group therapy sessions. Family participation during the PHP is also encouraged.

Upon completion of day treatment, patients may utilize Providence’s outpatient programs as a “step down” service. Depending on the needs of the patient, outpatient programs range from 10 to 20 hours of weekly meetings. A specialized outpatient program for dually diagnosed individuals is also available. Typically, patients remain in outpatient treatment for up to three months.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Providence Medical Center’s website notes the Portland location employs a team of physicians experienced in addiction medicine, registered nurses, mental health and substance abuse counselors, and case managers.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

While the hospital’s website does not currently provide information regarding the accommodations, Rehabs.com survey data indicated that loved ones and former patients generally approved of the facilities and the quality of meals. One alum compared living arrangements to sharing a motel room, describing the facilities as “clean and basic.” Some respondents, however, reported limited exercise opportunities.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Although the four alumni polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing provided polarized opinions of the treatment center, alumni tended to agree that the staff were a strength of the program.

“Recovering therapists were good, everything else was an issue,” an alum wrote. “Not good structure or different treatment models offered.” Another alum gave the center four out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, and also praised the staff. “Staff well and caring,” they wrote.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

To date, The four loved surveyed by Rehabs.com provided mostly positive feedback. On average, they gave the center 4.25 out of five stars when asked if they would recommend the Portland location.

Like alumni, loved ones mentioned the center’s staff as a strength, and gave the center 4.5 stars for the staff’s experience and training. They also indicated that the program facilitated adequate family participation (4.25-star rating on average), but two respondents questioned the program’s ability treat comorbid disorders.

For example, a husband of a patient wrote that the program was “not very specialized in the problem my wife was suffering.” He also commented on the lack of leisure activities, which he believed would make her more comfortable, but appreciated the “good attention to the patient.”

FINANCING

According to the center’s website, Providence’s substance abuse treatment unit in Portland accepts a range of private insurance providers, Medicaid, and Medicare. Financial assistance may also be available to eligible patients.

good attention to the patient, good food, nice looking place not very specialized in the problem my wife was suffering (eating disorder), my wife told me that even though they gave a nice and friendly attention to her she still felt uncomfortable like she was grounded in an unfamiliar place. rehabilitation centers should work on this, maybe with more leisure activities that help patients feel more welcomed and comfortable
