Substance Use Disorders / Addictions Committee

This group is a community of practice for any Metro-area community-based addictions provider issues. Our past work has included working with payers to improve the addictions payment system, including: increased Multnomah County funding, pushing for addictions and mental health rate parity within Health Share and the state, and organizing a sustainable training model for Trauma-Informed Care. Current priorities include legislative advocacy for residential treatment and strengthening our SUDs-specific workforce training.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee

This group provides leadership to the wider association and member organizations, with an EDI framework. They build community, share valuable resources, and ensure decision-making on a foundation of EDI. Recent developments include funded training, grants, networking opportunities, and member-specific resources for consulting services and policy development.
