Peer Mentoring

4D offers free county-based substance use recovery peer services to people between the ages of 18 to 35 in the following Oregon counties: Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas.

Our peer mentors, all of whom are in long-term recovery from drug and/or alcohol use disorders, have received training and certification through the Mental Health and Addiction Certification Board of Oregon and have at least two years of recovery experience.

In addition to inspiring, motivating, and mentoring our clients, we help guide through a range of activities aimed at building their recovery capital:
Entering and exiting various formal treatment services
Overcoming barriers
Setting and achieving goals
Accessing recovery support services
Navigating criminal justice and child welfare systems
Providing emotional and moral support
Providing referrals to partner orgs and agencies
Developing social support groups
Education and occupation support
Family/Parental support

Population(s) Served
Young adults
Substance abusers
LGBTQ people
Young men
Young women

We believe that every individual is an expert in their own lives; as such, they have the right to choose a self-directed approach to recovery that meets their needs.

Accordingly, we host a variety of meetings and activities for a range of people. These include but are not limited to:

Alcoholics Anonymous
Narcotics Anonymous
Refuge Recovery
Recovery Dharma
Sounds of Recovery (an art-based recovery group)
Recovery yoga
Heroin Anonymous
Medication-Assisted Recovery Anonymous
4D Specific Recovery Groups: Open for Attack, a men’s vulnerability group, LGBTQ Collaging, and Women’s Empowerment.

Please note that while our peer recovery mentors are available only to 18-35 year-olds in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties, our recovery meeting and events are open to anyone who identifies as in or seeking recovery.

Population(s) Served

Supportive recovery housing — also referred to as a halfway house or sober living — offers a great post-treatment or early recovery option for those new to recovery. Residents live with a group of peers who are all in recovery. These homes provide a supportive environment that bridges the gap between a treatment facility and returning to independent living.

Our supportive recovery housing is a great option for those who are worried about returning home to an environment where they last used drugs and alcohol, or where family members and partners may not be in recovery. Being around drugs and alcohol can seriously derail the recovery, and supportive housing can help alleviate this risk.

Recovery housing typically requires participants to be involved in some type of peer recovery support. This includes mutual aid meetings like AA or Refuge Recovery, a peer mentor, and shared chores within the home. Fellow residents are encouraged to provide support and encouragement to their peers.

Population(s) Served

At 4D, we believe that the only way to overcome the substance use disorder epidemic is to be active in the community through increased civic engagement opportunities. We envision a future where systems, communities, and individuals work together to ensure all people receive the support needed to find and sustain recovery from substances.

Civic engagement makes a difference in our communities by improving knowledge, skills, and values. This in turn improves the quality of life in our community.

4D’s civic engagement focuses on reducing stigma, increasing recovery-centered funding, and improving the availability of services for people seeking recovery.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
