Calendar Event Sorting

At the top, the 24/7/365 SAMHSA Disaster Helpline and similar links.

Next, Bundled “All Day” Events

Some organizations (like 12 step recovery programs, AA, NA, AlAnon, etc.) have so many events happening throughout the day that they need to be in a bundled listing to spare endless scrolling.  Often there is a link to look up events by zip code and other criteria.

Lastly, Time-Specific Events

So you can see what’s happening in the next hours, time specific events are tagged and listed by start time from 12:01am early morning to 11:59pm late night.  There can be events and warmlines operating in different time zones, though we try to list all in Oregon’s Pacific Time Zone.

Harm reduction

Harm reduction honors the dignity and wellbeing of each person.

Treatment

Treatment combines medical care, like supporting people through withdrawal symptoms or starting medication that helps with cravings, with services that help you learn coping skills. Treatment can happen in an inpatient or outpatient setting, and you and your treatment provider decide together what kind of treatment is right for you.

Recovery

Being in recovery means making changes over time that can help you feel better, live life on your own terms, and work toward reaching your goals. Recovery looks different for everyone and might include medication-assisted treatment, self-help or support groups, recovery coaching, or being part of recovery communities.

Supportive services

A person’s recovery is best supported when they have everything they need to live well. In addition to substance use services, services like housing support, employment assistance, and food insecurity services are also available.

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs)

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs) are networks of organizations that provide trauma-informed, culturally specific services to people who need treatment and support for substance use concerns. The services they provide include screening for substance use disorder, substance use disorder treatment, harm reduction services, and peer support services. They also screen for health and social service needs, including housing support. Each county and Tribal area in Oregon has at least one BHRN.

Never Use Alone Inc. is an all volunteer peer-lead peer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2019 and incorporated in 2021 to end the opioid overdose public health emergency. We operate a National Overdose Prevention Call Center providing crisis intervention and response hotline services to people who use substances while alone.

NUA began on August 25, 2019 as Never Use Alone Toll-free project, a grassroots group of 13 visionary harm reductionists committed to ending unnecessary and accidental overdose deaths effecting people who use drugs while alone. We created the first nationwide overdose prevention lifeline phone based “spotter” service available 24/7/365 for people to use drugs safely while alone. If a person experiences an adverse drug event and becomes non-responsive, our operators call EMS on their behalf to safely reverse an overdose.

NUA volunteer operators receive phone calls from people who use substances while alone in their car, home, public restroom, work and elsewhere. Our peer support operators are trained in substance use safety plans based on method of consumption, how to detect an adverse drug event and to contact local EMS who assist in reversing acute medical conditions.

Today, NUA provides bilingual English and Spanish overdose prevention services at no cost. NUA has received over 16,000 calls, detected and safely reversed 88 adverse drug events. We provide substance use harm reduction outreach, advocacy, education and training to people who use drugs, their caregivers, and community stakeholders.

NUA’s overdose prevention services save lives!

What Is HAMS?
The acronym HAMS stands for Harm reduction, Abstinence, and Moderation Support. HAMS provides pragmatic strategies to enable individuals to reduce the risks associated with drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction is non-judgmental–it sees nothing inherently wrong or diseased about recreational intoxication. Alcohol Harm Reduction recognizes that most drinkers have no wish to harm or kill themselves or others.
Alcohol Harm Reduction does not seek to force individuals to change in ways which they do not choose for themselves. Alcohol Harm Reduction respects every person as a unique individual and supports each individual in the goal which he/she has chosen for him/herself.
Alcohol Harm Reduction neither promotes nor condemns drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction supports goals of safer drinking, reduced drinking, or abstinence from alcohol or other substances.
The HAMS Harm Reduction Network provides information and support for people who wish to reduce the harm in their lives caused by the use of alcohol. We support every positive change.

Never Use Alone Inc. is an all volunteer peer-lead peer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2019 and incorporated in 2021 to end the opioid overdose public health emergency. We operate a National Overdose Prevention Call Center providing crisis intervention and response hotline services to people who use substances while alone.

NUA began on August 25, 2019 as Never Use Alone Toll-free project, a grassroots group of 13 visionary harm reductionists committed to ending unnecessary and accidental overdose deaths effecting people who use drugs while alone. We created the first nationwide overdose prevention lifeline phone based “spotter” service available 24/7/365 for people to use drugs safely while alone. If a person experiences an adverse drug event and becomes non-responsive, our operators call EMS on their behalf to safely reverse an overdose.

NUA volunteer operators receive phone calls from people who use substances while alone in their car, home, public restroom, work and elsewhere. Our peer support operators are trained in substance use safety plans based on method of consumption, how to detect an adverse drug event and to contact local EMS who assist in reversing acute medical conditions.

Today, NUA provides bilingual English and Spanish overdose prevention services at no cost. NUA has received over 16,000 calls, detected and safely reversed 88 adverse drug events. We provide substance use harm reduction outreach, advocacy, education and training to people who use drugs, their caregivers, and community stakeholders.

What Is HAMS?
The acronym HAMS stands for Harm reduction, Abstinence, and Moderation Support. HAMS provides pragmatic strategies to enable individuals to reduce the risks associated with drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction is non-judgmental–it sees nothing inherently wrong or diseased about recreational intoxication. Alcohol Harm Reduction recognizes that most drinkers have no wish to harm or kill themselves or others.
Alcohol Harm Reduction does not seek to force individuals to change in ways which they do not choose for themselves. Alcohol Harm Reduction respects every person as a unique individual and supports each individual in the goal which he/she has chosen for him/herself.
Alcohol Harm Reduction neither promotes nor condemns drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction supports goals of safer drinking, reduced drinking, or abstinence from alcohol or other substances.
The HAMS Harm Reduction Network provides information and support for people who wish to reduce the harm in their lives caused by the use of alcohol. We support every positive change.

Oregon Recovery Center Hotline

Reach out.

We’re here for you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Oregon Recovery Center Hotline is a free and confidential statewide resource that can connect you to harm reduction, treatment, recovery, and supportive services.


Call Now – (833) 975 – 0505
or
Use this Link For Live Chat
https://orrecoverycenterhotline.org/

Connecting you to the services you need.

When you call us or chat with us online, you’ll talk to one of our caring, trained Peer Support Specialists. We can help you decide what kind of services you need by asking you a few questions, and we can connect you to them through your local Behavioral Health Resource Network (BHRN). Learn more about the kind of services available to you

Received a fine for possession?

If you received a citation for possessing small amounts of drugs in Oregon (called a “Class E violation”), you can have the fine waived by calling the Oregon Recovery Center Hotline and completing a health assessment.

1. Call us at (833) 975-0505. Our trained Peer Support Specialists will provide a screening for substance use, mental health and other supportive service referrals you might need.

2. Once the screening is complete, we will refer you to appropriate services.

3. We will email you a letter that confirms you have completed the health assessment. Bring it to court to waive your fine.

Harm reduction

Harm reduction saves lives. These services keep people who use drugs, like fentanyl or alcohol, safe by offering non-judgmental care that improves their quality of life and health, prevents and manages injury and disease, and prevents fatal overdoses. Harm reduction honors the dignity and wellbeing of each person.

Treatment

Treatment combines medical care, like supporting people through withdrawal symptoms or starting medication that helps with cravings, with services that help you learn coping skills. Treatment can happen in an inpatient or outpatient setting, and you and your treatment provider decide together what kind of treatment is right for you.

Recovery

Being in recovery means making changes over time that can help you feel better, live life on your own terms, and work toward reaching your goals. Recovery looks different for everyone and might include medication-assisted treatment, self-help or support groups, recovery coaching, or being part of recovery communities.

Supportive services

A person’s recovery is best supported when they have everything they need to live well. In addition to substance use services, services like housing support, employment assistance, and food insecurity services are also available.

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs)

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs) are networks of organizations that provide trauma-informed, culturally specific services to people who need treatment and support for substance use concerns. The services they provide include screening for substance use disorder, substance use disorder treatment, harm reduction services, and peer support services. They also screen for health and social service needs, including housing support. Each county and Tribal area in Oregon has at least one BHRN.

Harm reduction

Harm reduction saves lives. These services keep people who use drugs, like fentanyl or alcohol, safe by offering non-judgmental care that improves their quality of life and health, prevents and manages injury and disease, and prevents fatal overdoses. Harm reduction honors the dignity and wellbeing of each person.

Treatment

Treatment combines medical care, like supporting people through withdrawal symptoms or starting medication that helps with cravings, with services that help you learn coping skills. Treatment can happen in an inpatient or outpatient setting, and you and your treatment provider decide together what kind of treatment is right for you.

Recovery

Being in recovery means making changes over time that can help you feel better, live life on your own terms, and work toward reaching your goals. Recovery looks different for everyone and might include medication-assisted treatment, self-help or support groups, recovery coaching, or being part of recovery communities.

Supportive services

A person’s recovery is best supported when they have everything they need to live well. In addition to substance use services, services like housing support, employment assistance, and food insecurity services are also available.

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs)

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs) are networks of organizations that provide trauma-informed, culturally specific services to people who need treatment and support for substance use concerns. The services they provide include screening for substance use disorder, substance use disorder treatment, harm reduction services, and peer support services. They also screen for health and social service needs, including housing support. Each county and Tribal area in Oregon has at least one BHRN.

Never Use Alone Inc. is an all volunteer peer-lead peer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2019 and incorporated in 2021 to end the opioid overdose public health emergency. We operate a National Overdose Prevention Call Center providing crisis intervention and response hotline services to people who use substances while alone.

NUA began on August 25, 2019 as Never Use Alone Toll-free project, a grassroots group of 13 visionary harm reductionists committed to ending unnecessary and accidental overdose deaths effecting people who use drugs while alone. We created the first nationwide overdose prevention lifeline phone based “spotter” service available 24/7/365 for people to use drugs safely while alone. If a person experiences an adverse drug event and becomes non-responsive, our operators call EMS on their behalf to safely reverse an overdose.

NUA volunteer operators receive phone calls from people who use substances while alone in their car, home, public restroom, work and elsewhere. Our peer support operators are trained in substance use safety plans based on method of consumption, how to detect an adverse drug event and to contact local EMS who assist in reversing acute medical conditions.

Today, NUA provides bilingual English and Spanish overdose prevention services at no cost. NUA has received over 16,000 calls, detected and safely reversed 88 adverse drug events. We provide substance use harm reduction outreach, advocacy, education and training to people who use drugs, their caregivers, and community stakeholders.

NUA’s overdose prevention services save lives!

What Is HAMS?
The acronym HAMS stands for Harm reduction, Abstinence, and Moderation Support. HAMS provides pragmatic strategies to enable individuals to reduce the risks associated with drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction is non-judgmental–it sees nothing inherently wrong or diseased about recreational intoxication. Alcohol Harm Reduction recognizes that most drinkers have no wish to harm or kill themselves or others.
Alcohol Harm Reduction does not seek to force individuals to change in ways which they do not choose for themselves. Alcohol Harm Reduction respects every person as a unique individual and supports each individual in the goal which he/she has chosen for him/herself.
Alcohol Harm Reduction neither promotes nor condemns drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction supports goals of safer drinking, reduced drinking, or abstinence from alcohol or other substances.
The HAMS Harm Reduction Network provides information and support for people who wish to reduce the harm in their lives caused by the use of alcohol. We support every positive change.

Never Use Alone Inc. is an all volunteer peer-lead peer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2019 and incorporated in 2021 to end the opioid overdose public health emergency. We operate a National Overdose Prevention Call Center providing crisis intervention and response hotline services to people who use substances while alone.

NUA began on August 25, 2019 as Never Use Alone Toll-free project, a grassroots group of 13 visionary harm reductionists committed to ending unnecessary and accidental overdose deaths effecting people who use drugs while alone. We created the first nationwide overdose prevention lifeline phone based “spotter” service available 24/7/365 for people to use drugs safely while alone. If a person experiences an adverse drug event and becomes non-responsive, our operators call EMS on their behalf to safely reverse an overdose.

NUA volunteer operators receive phone calls from people who use substances while alone in their car, home, public restroom, work and elsewhere. Our peer support operators are trained in substance use safety plans based on method of consumption, how to detect an adverse drug event and to contact local EMS who assist in reversing acute medical conditions.

Today, NUA provides bilingual English and Spanish overdose prevention services at no cost. NUA has received over 16,000 calls, detected and safely reversed 88 adverse drug events. We provide substance use harm reduction outreach, advocacy, education and training to people who use drugs, their caregivers, and community stakeholders.

NUA’s overdose prevention services save lives!

Call NUA at 800-484-3731. Our operators would love to hear from you. No judgment, no stigma, just love.

What Is HAMS?
The acronym HAMS stands for Harm reduction, Abstinence, and Moderation Support. HAMS provides pragmatic strategies to enable individuals to reduce the risks associated with drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction is non-judgmental–it sees nothing inherently wrong or diseased about recreational intoxication. Alcohol Harm Reduction recognizes that most drinkers have no wish to harm or kill themselves or others.
Alcohol Harm Reduction does not seek to force individuals to change in ways which they do not choose for themselves. Alcohol Harm Reduction respects every person as a unique individual and supports each individual in the goal which he/she has chosen for him/herself.
Alcohol Harm Reduction neither promotes nor condemns drinking. Alcohol Harm Reduction supports goals of safer drinking, reduced drinking, or abstinence from alcohol or other substances.
The HAMS Harm Reduction Network provides information and support for people who wish to reduce the harm in their lives caused by the use of alcohol. We support every positive change.

Received a fine for possession?

If you received a citation for possessing small amounts of drugs in Oregon (called a “Class E violation”), you can have the fine waived by calling the Oregon Recovery Center Hotline and completing a health assessment.

1. Call us at (833) 975-0505. Our trained Peer Support Specialists will provide a screening for substance use, mental health and other supportive service referrals you might need.

2. Once the screening is complete, we will refer you to appropriate services.

3. We will email you a letter that confirms you have completed the health assessment. Bring it to court to waive your fine.

Harm reduction

Harm reduction saves lives. These services keep people who use drugs, like fentanyl or alcohol, safe by offering non-judgmental care that improves their quality of life and health, prevents and manages injury and disease, and prevents fatal overdoses. Harm reduction honors the dignity and wellbeing of each person.

Treatment

Treatment combines medical care, like supporting people through withdrawal symptoms or starting medication that helps with cravings, with services that help you learn coping skills. Treatment can happen in an inpatient or outpatient setting, and you and your treatment provider decide together what kind of treatment is right for you.

Recovery

Being in recovery means making changes over time that can help you feel better, live life on your own terms, and work toward reaching your goals. Recovery looks different for everyone and might include medication-assisted treatment, self-help or support groups, recovery coaching, or being part of recovery communities.

Supportive services

A person’s recovery is best supported when they have everything they need to live well. In addition to substance use services, services like housing support, employment assistance, and food insecurity services are also available.

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs)

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs) are networks of organizations that provide trauma-informed, culturally specific services to people who need treatment and support for substance use concerns. The services they provide include screening for substance use disorder, substance use disorder treatment, harm reduction services, and peer support services. They also screen for health and social service needs, including housing support. Each county and Tribal area in Oregon has at least one BHRN.
