Description

WE CAN'T DO THIS ALONE! HELP US LAUNCH OREGON'S RECOVERY REVOLUTION ON 9.30.2017!

Join people in recovery, our friends and family, allied organizations and elected officals at a rally at Shemanski Park in Downtown Portland to unveil Oregon Recovers, a new statewide campaign to take Oregon from last to first in access and availability to addiction treatment and recovery services.

  • We now have over 60,000 drug overdose deaths annually in the United States.
  • The United Nations has labelled the U.S. as the #1 Drug Overdose Death country in the entire world, based on the number of deaths per capita.
  • Oregon is one the top 10 drug abusing states in America, and ranks 4th in the U.S. for illegal drug use.
  • Oregon ranks 45th in the U.S. (bottom of the barrel) for access to addiction services.

Stand up and be a voice for recovery. We need more addiction services, and less incarceration. We need more clean and sober recovery housing for people. We need more detox, addiction treatment, and peer services to reach out and give support to those who need addiction recovery.

HAVE YOU LOST SOMEONE TO ADDICTION? BRING AN OLD SHOE!

We are asking everyone who has lost someone to addiction to bring an old shoe that can be used to demonstrate to policy makers and the press the magnitude of the problem. Write their name on the shoe. We hope for a large pile of shoes in front of the speakers podium.
