of recovery at the Hooper 40th Anniversary from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Left Bank Annex, 101 N. Weidler Street. All are welcome. Limited parking at event site; overflow parking at Rose Garden; public transportation is encouraged. The event, sponsored by the
Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems, coincides with National Recovery Month promoted by the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA); this year’s theme for recovery month is “It’s Worth It.” Alumni, staff, neighbors and
friends are welcome at the free celebration. Commemorative coins will be given to the first 400 people, attendees will be encouraged to document their clean date and guests will have the opportunity to share their Hooper story on video. In addition, Central
City Concern will showcase 40 years of Hooper Center memorabilia. “Hooper” – known throughout the city as an entry point for drug and alcohol recovery – opened initially in October 1971 with support from a National Inebriate Grant. Two program areas make up
“Hooper” – Sobering Station/CHIERS located in NE Portland and Hooper Detoxification Stabilization Center in North Portland near the Rose Quarter. CHIERS staff are medically-trained and authorized to transport intoxicated people to the 24-hour Sobering Station
for a few hours as a safe place to sober up. The Sobering Station serves approximately 6,000 people yearly. Hooper Detoxification Stabilization Center provides residential, medical detoxification and stabilization for individuals over a 4-10 day stay. More
than 2,000 people (many are homeless and without insurance) start their drug/alcohol recovery process at Hooper Detox every year. Upon exiting Hooper Detox, staff work to connect individuals with ongoing recovery support and housing if needed. Central City
Concern’s mission is providing comprehensive solutions to ending homelessness and achieving self-sufficiency. It serves approximately 13,000 people yearly with healthcare, housing and employment.
