People have been standing in a line, holding hands, and saying the Serenity Prayer on the Interstate Bridge every September for the past 21 years. This grand act serves to spread a straightforward message.
Every person, every family, and every community can recover, according to Erica Gregson of 4D Recovery.
In September, which is recognized as National Recovery Month, new evidence-based treatment and recovery techniques are supported and promoted.
There were many people on the bridge, including LaKeesha Dumas, the consumer engagement coordinator for Multnomah County Mental Health and Addiction Services. She claimed that despite being sober for ten years, she was once a destitute crack addict. As a member of an oversight and accountability panel established after Oregon voters adopted Measure 110 in 2020, she is now giving back to the community.
Which treatment and recovery facilities receive cash from Oregon’s marijuana tax fund is a decision that must be made by that council. She recognized that the newly implemented procedure, which will allocate around $300 million, has been cumbersome.
She informed Focus Hillsboro news that because it had never been done in this way before, it had taken a little longer. But we were able to overhaul an entire system.
When those designations were finally finalized, Multnomah County received $59 million for 41 behavioral health resource networks. 4D Recovery, a program for those ages 18 to 35, was also chosen.
Elton Price remarked, “Meeting individuals my age in recovery was an incredible life changer. “My first experience with recovery was walking into a meeting and not feeling like I could connect with the older people there. Thus, getting to know folks my age completely changed my life.
County residents in Washington and Clackamas are also served by 4D Recovery.
Clackamas County’s Behavioral Health Resource Networks won $14.5 million, while Washington County‘s garnered little under $21 million.
