Educational Opportunities

Oregon State Hospital hosts a Dual Diagnosis Anonymous (DDA) family support network meeting from 11 a.m. to noon on the fourth Saturday of each month. The meeting is held at the hospital's Empowerment Center (Cottage R11) and is open to any friends or family members of Oregon State Hospital patients.

Family Town Halls

Strong relationships with family members and friends are an important part of the recovery process for our patients. In order to support these relationships and encourage family members to take part in their loved ones' recovery, Oregon State Hospital's Consumer and Family Services hosts Family and Friends Town Hall meetings four times per year.

During these meetings, you can meet with hospital leaders, ask questions, provide feedback, and learn about any changes at the hospital that will affect your loved one. The next Family and Friends Town Hall will be held XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
