Challenge

Currently, Clackamas County community members experiencing a behavioral health crisis do not have enough support resources to get back on their feet. Behavioral health includes mental health and wellbeing, and related behavior may include substance addiction. Often, these community members draw the attention of law enforcement and are taken to jail or the emergency room. Emergency departments and local jails are not equipped to provide the type of support they need, though that need is increasing.

Solution

Clackamas County and the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office are partnering in the development of a behavioral health stabilization and short-term care center.

The Clackamas County Stabilization Center will serve adults who are referred by law enforcement health providers, and mobile crisis responders. The program will build on the successful neighborhood relationships of the Clackamas County's Corrections Center that has existed at the site for more than 25 years. The Stabilization Center will be a comfortable and safe place for community members who need short-term support, coping skills and connections to resources to manage a crisis.

Timeline

Construction is scheduled to start in late 2024. The program will open in Fall 2025.
