CODA, Inc. was established in Portland, OR in 1969 to provide methadone services as an outpatient program. Today, it has metamorphosed into providing a full continuum of care, including detox, medication-assisted treatment, inpatient and outpatient treatment, and transitional living services for adults.
CODA offers its programs from multiple centers spread across the state of Oregon.
CODA offers housing facilities at its Portland unit. These gender-segregated units provide 45 beds for men and 27 beds for women. The center also has five beds in women’s section for kids of mothers who are seeking treatment.
The rooms are shared between residents. There is minimal furnishing in each room – closet spaces and small dressers. While there is an ensuite bathroom in some rooms, residents living in rooms without attached bathrooms end up using the main restroom. At the start of the treatment program, a room is shared by four members, but the numbers reduce as the treatment progresses.
CODA also operates a 28-bed facility in Tigard, a few miles away from Portland. This facility has 12 beds for detox, for both men and women. Women who complete the detox are transitioned to the Portland unit while men are transitioned to the residential unit.
The residential unit has basic bedrooms, which are shared by two clients. The rooms are minimally furnished and include a bathroom. Clients can enjoy a smoke during breaks at designated areas. Cell phones and other electronic items are banned at both centers.
At its Portland unit, the meals are served at different times to male and female clients. The clients are served three meals prepared by a chef. The chef also prepares two snacks every day. Dietary restrictions and recommendations are accommodated. Clients can also enjoy the salad bar at lunch and dinner.
At its Tigard facility, clients are served three meals, served cafeteria-style. Like its Portland unit, the meals are prepared by a chef. Dietary restrictions and recommendations are taken care of on an as-needed basis. Clients can also enjoy snacks and full-strength coffee during the day.
All programs at CODA have a waitlist. Clients who want to participate in CODA programs are called to a “waitlist group,” which is held at its administration office every Tuesday and Thursday at 10:00 am. Individual sessions are held with prospective clients. The clients then take part in a broader group discussion. The performance in these sessions determines program eligibility.
CODA does not accept clients using benzodiazepines or having violent criminal backgrounds. But it does offer referrals to clients who are deemed unfit for CODA programs.
Once the clients are admitted, they undergo a thorough evaluation. Those requiring detox are provided medically-supervised detox at its Tigard facility. Clients typically stay in detox for five to ten days. Clients are under 24/7 supervision while they are in detox.
The length of stay in all CODA inpatient programs ranges from three to five months. During the first month, clients cannot leave the houses except for any legal or medical needs. They get passes once the first 30 days are over.
The treatment programs at CODA emphasizes evidence-based approaches, with DBT and CBT being the primary modalities. The curriculum is gender-specific and includes daily eight-hour group therapies, once weekly individual sessions and educational classes on substance abuse.
Copings skills, relapse prevention, and the 12-step approach are the main topics of discussion in group sessions. CODA does not provide any dual-diagnosis support but does offer medical referrals.
Once the clients graduate from the residential programs, they step down to various outpatient programs that are offered at Clackamas, Portland, Gresham, Tigard, or Hillsboro.
A typical Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at CODA includes attending three (minimum) 90-minute group sessions and an hour of the individual session once weekly. Program length and duration depend upon the clients.
After completing the IOP, the clients are transitioned to regular outpatient programs that have two group sessions every week and an as-needed individual session. Group sessions focus on anger management, drug, and alcohol education, coping skills, and relapse prevention.
The outpatient treatment program for opioids in Portland focuses on using Suboxone and methadone for medically managing the opiate withdrawal. Clients need to visit the facility for every-day dosing. CODA also provides medical management, client counseling, and care coordination.
Care coordination involves finding stable employment and safe housing. The program duration depends on the individuals.
The CODA treatment team includes an executive director (Master’s-level), a medical director, and Master’s-level directors for residential and outpatient services. The team also comprises a professor of psychiatry, certified counselors, and licensed rehab technicians at each facility.
Clients in the residential programs take part in supervised weekend outings. CODA also offers services to criminal justice clients who have been released recently from the Washington County Community Corrections Center.
CODA’s outpatient facilities located in Clackamas, Portland, Tigard, Gresham, and Hillsboro also offer aftercare services. Transitional housing services are provided at two locations in Aloha for female clients who are reuniting with their kids who have been placed in foster care.
