Help is free and available 24/7. Language interpreters are available.

Safe + Strong Helpline, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority, is an emotional support and resource referral line that can assist anyone who is struggling and seeking support. Callers do not need to be in a crisis to contact this line.

Many of us are juggling concerns about wildfires and smoke, COVID-19, political unrest, financial instability, and more, in addition to the everyday things we personally struggle with.

Disasters can leave us feeling increased anxiety, worry, anger, or depression. In these challenging times, we provide emotional support, mental health triage, drug and alcohol counseling, or just connection with a person who cares.

If you or a loved one is feeling worried, upset, or overwhelmed, give us a call. Our call counselor will listen, assess your needs, and problem-solve with referral to community services and resources if needed.

Dual Diagnosis Anonymous

 

 

“You protected us, now we support you!”

https://ddainc.org/dda-veterans-page/

DDA was founded by a highly decorated veteran, Corbett Monica. After serving in the Vietnam War, like other veterans, returning to home only find anguish, trauma, and remorse. After suffering from severe PTSD, OCD, survivors guilt, and addictions, Corbett found a way to transcend from destructive means with the inception of Dual Diagnosis Anonymous (DDA) providing hope and recovery through our peer support which is now his legacy.

Culturally responsive DDA’s Veterans meetings are intended to provide a safe venue to be open about depression, post-traumatic stress, alcohol and drug use, abuse, and addiction as well as serve as a resource for navigation of the telehealth system, It will encourage healthy solutions for adapting to the changing times. Specifically. the project will Improve access for Veterans and military service members to dual diagnosis services through the creation of on-line recovery support groups and on-line DDA meetings.

This project will serve Veterans throughout the state and is beginning outreach through Veterans publications, local newspapers, the VA, Veterans websites, list services, and anything else that will help identify Oregonians who can use the services.

Military Children Resources

Military kids face unique psychological challenges related to military life. Compared to their non-military peers, military kids are many times more likely to move multiple times during their school careers and have a parent absent for long periods of time in potentially dangerous locations – factors that can greatly stress military kids’ mental health.

The Defense Health Agency maintains two online resources to support military children use the links povided below:

  • Military Kids Connect is an online community specifically for military children ages 6-17, and provides access to age-appropriate resources for military kids and also for parents, caregivers, and educators to help them understand and support military kids at home and in school.
  • Sesame Street for Military Families is a free, bilingual (English and Spanish) website where families can find information and multimedia resources on the topics of military deployments, multiple deployments, homecomings, injuries, grief, and self-expression.

A 12-step recovery program

https://www.foodaddicts.org/

Food addiction can take many forms. Symptoms include obesity, under eating, and bulimia. People often think of the term “eating disorders” when describing the disease of food addiction. Food addicts are obsessed with food, body size, and weight. We spend our days thinking about when and what we are going to eat or not eat. Binging, purging, and dieting are a way of life. The bottom line is that we can’t stop thinking about eating. Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) offers relief from the symptoms of eating disorders and guidance on living in recovery.

12-Step online for Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Sounds of Sobriety (SOS):  This online email group was formed to help us who have a hearing loss (deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing) to find a place to recover from alcoholism. For many of us, face-to-face AA meetings no longer work. All members of AA, or those who think they may have a problem with alcohol, are welcome.    SOS_online_group-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

Deaf Grateful:  This is a real-time open discussion meeting on Saturday at 4 pm (EST) for deaf & HOH people who have a desire to stop drinking. Meeting uses videoconferencing software (easily downloaded) that requires a high speed internet connection and a webcam. Our communication mode is ASL only (no audio). http://doda.omnijoin.com

OLGA – OnLine Gamers Anonymous – Virtual Online Chats – Weekdays and Weekends @ Online via Chat

On Line Gamers Anonymous (OLGA)

Excerpt(s) from Website:

Our Mission Statement is: “On-Line Gamers Anonymous® is a group of people sharing their experience, strengths and hope to help each other recover from problems resulting from excessive game playing.”

On-Line Gamers Anonymous® was founded by Liz Woolley in May of 2002 after her son, Shawn, committed suicide as a direct result of being addicted to an on-line game. Liz was soon joined by Ron Jaffe (Diggo McDiggity), a recovering gamer. They supported each other as the fellowship grew.

The OLGA® and OLG-Anon Recovery Fellowships and Outreach, are divisions of OLGA®/OLG-Anon (On-Line Gamers Anonymous®) World Services, Inc.. OLGA® and OLG-Anon Fellowships are dedicated to offering support to addicted gamers (OLGA), their families (OLG-Anon) so they can heal and recover from problems resulting from the newest “drug of choice” – excessive video game playing. Outreach is our public service division that assists in providing information to educate about the dangers of excessive game playing. The Outreach division assists in providing an extensive list of professional resources who provide services for those affected by excessive video gaming,video gaming addiction or a video gaming disorder. Outreach also helps raise funds to continue our mission.

We offer support. Our community is open to all who seek support. We are not an activist group, nor do we sponsor such organizations. Our message forums are available to all, regardless of bias or opinion. We are here to share our experience, strength and hope and encourage peer-to-peer support. Family and friends are invited to share their experience, compassion, and wisdom. Every day we accumulate and add to our collection of information related to excessive gaming and the issues it creates. Sharing this with our visitors is a primary goal.

…Our organization is staffed by many people, who at one time or another have considered themselves excessive gamers or have had their lives affected by an excessive gamer.

RECOVERY DHARMA ONLINE

We are a group of Recovery Dharma Members who use technology to meet up with each other from around the world. We make an effort to stay in contact with each other between meetings to form Spiritual Friendships.

We get together online for meetings, workshops, and inter-sangha business. Some of us stay around after the closing to hangout in the Virtual Parking Lot for fellowship. For some of us, this is our primary recovery community. For others, it supplements the meetings available to us locally.

Recovery Dharma Online organizes daily meetings accessible via computer, smartphone, or dial-in. Together we meditate, study Buddhist teachings, and support each other on our paths to sobriety and peace.

May 27 all-day

 

GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from a gambling problem.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop gambling.

There are no dues or fees for Gamblers Anonymous membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. Gamblers Anonymous is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. Our primary purpose is to stop gambling and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.”

From the Gamblers Anonymous Website:

Types of Meetings

Closed Meeting:
Only those with a gambling problem, or those who think they may have a gambling problem, and have a desire to stop gambling, may attend and participate.

Modified Closed Meeting:
Same as a “Closed Meeting” but the members would vote to include certain groups such as health professionals, guests attending with first time members, and persons with other addictions in need of a meeting

Open Meeting:
Spouses, family, and friends of the gambler are welcome
to attend and observe the meeting.

According to the Center for Hope and Recovery, “A warmline is a telephone service (aka a call line) for people who are looking for someone to discuss their daily struggles. Warmlines are staffed with peers who have lived experience of mental health struggles themselves and who are open to sharing their stories of challenging situations, recovery, and perseverance”  The hours, days and geographic reach may vary.  Fortunately, there are many warmlines including quite a number operating in Oregon such as but not limited to: The David Romprey Warmline.

Article regarding Peer Warmlines

Sustaining Recovery through the Night:
Impact of a Peer-Run Warm Line

by Rebecca Spirito Dalgin, Simonne Maline, and Peter Driscoll

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21768081/

Excerpt(s):

Objective: This exploratory study describes the impact of a peer-run warm line on the lives of individuals with psychiatric disabilities.

Methods: Phone surveys were completed with 480 warm line callers over four years. Results: Warm line callers reported a reduction in the use of crisis services and a reduction of feelings of isolation.

Conclusions and Implications for Practice: The results indicate that peer-run warm lines can fill an important void in the lives of individuals living with mental [health challenges]. Although warm lines at any time of day are helpful, keeping warm lines running after 5pm and throughout the night provides support services not typically available after office hours and can assist with loneliness, symptom management, and the process of recovery.

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline!

Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day.

No appointments needed! We are here for you!

Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.

Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! David Romprey Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has lead many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.


We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.


Any Oregonian needing support may call our David Romprey Oregon Warmline to speak to a trained peer. We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ any one to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this David Romprey Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.

C – TEC Youth Services – Clackamas Achievement Program – Assisting Youth with Education and Employment Goals – Accepting Referrals @ Online event regester for details
May 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

 

C-TEC Youth Services’ Clackamas Achievement Program supports youth ages 14-21 in and around Clackamas County who have not obtained a high school diploma or GED and have become disengaged from education during the COVID pandemic.

Services we offer include:

  • case management,
  • financial assistance,
  • support services,
  • system navigation,
  • and community referrals.

Initial contacts with youth focus on the safety, health, and well-being of the youth and family, with an emphasis on a caring interaction to support the student holistically.

Students will work with a  Youth Re engagement Advisor (YRA) who will stay in regular contact, providing appropriate referrals to community agencies, and helping to support the student with navigating school enrollment with their individual district, alternative, or GED program. The YRA will continue to support the youth by encouraging attendance, progress, and addressing any needs or barriers.

  • Support services such as tutors, transportation assistance, school supplies, equipment, etc. will be provided as appropriate.
  • Youth will be offered dual enrollment into other programs such as C-TEC’s Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) services to leverage additional funds and services. WIOA participants are eligible for ongoing services that include transition to college, opportunities for career exploration and hands-on career exposure, work readiness training, certifications and credentials, and paid work experience.
  • Clackamas Community College is partnering to provide education services such as high school credit recovery and GED preparation and testing, however, this can be arranged with Mt Hood Community College or Portland Community College for students that are closer to these institutions.
  • Their Workforce Development Department will provide opportunities for youth over 18 that are interested in job training programs or increasing their skills. Assistance with financial aid will be offered, as well as one-on-one support with navigating processes and systems at CCC.
  • Clackamas Workforce Partnership is partnering to provide workforce development activities such as career exploration opportunities and paid work experience, as well as coordination between school districts and workforce development entities.

The YRA will continue to follow up with students and families to offer resources and support to help ensure continued school participation and progress. This program will provide trauma informed services.
