Expanding Recovery Options: Wheelhouse

Introducing Wheelhouse:

The goal of Wheelhouse is to develop an enhanced infrastructure and recovery-oriented system of care that not only improves, but also transforms, access to and quality of care for people with substance use disorders in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties.

The project aims to expand capacity for Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) within existing provider networks. The model builds off successful programs in Vermont and Maryland, as well as successful pilot projects in Clackamas and Multnomah counties.
