About Our Program:
Family Involvement Team (FIT) for Recovery provides parents who have Substance Use Disorder and are involved in the Child Welfare system with rapid access to substance use treatment in Multnomah County.
Our services are designed to engage participants in treatment and help parents move towards reunification with their children and the creation of more stable families. We work in collaboration with Multnomah County, local alcohol & drug treatment agencies, and the DHS (Department of Human Services) Self-Sufficiency Office. Our Certified Drug & Alcohol Counselors (CADC) and Outreach Workers are available at the Juvenile Court and all Multnomah County DHS offices. Throughout the past two fiscal years, we served approximately 500 clients each year. Participants must be referred to our program by their DHS Child Welfare caseworker.
