The Change Point Difference

At ChangePoint, the client comes first.

We provide substance abuse recovery treatment to both voluntary and mandated clients in the Portland and Vancouver area.

Over three decades of substance use disorder (SUD) treatment in the Portland Metro area has taught us that success depends on the therapeutic alliance–the exchange of trust between clients and counselors.

At ChangePoint, we earn that trust. We treat every client with dignity and respect regardless of why they are in treatment.

There’s nothing simple about substance abuse. Many factors play a role, including:

  •  family and relationship matters
  •  employment concerns
  •  legal matters
  •  history of trauma

We’ll help you understand the impact of these issues on your life and substance use, and help you understand how to cope with them in support of your quest for sobriety.

You deserve a sobriety worth protecting.

ChangePoint: your partner in recovery since 1983.
