Quest Center has long been a place of acceptance of change. The Finding and Sustaining Recovery (FSR) program, led by Danielle Deer embodies this core tradition. FSR has a successful completion rate of treatment that is twice the average rate of success in other publicly funded treatment programs in Multnomah County.

The disease of addiction often wounds, if not destroys, the essential components of human nature as reflected in a person’s mind, body, and spirit. Quest Center’s supportive, nurturing, accepting community is key to aiding in people’s recovery.

FSR is an abstinence-based, multi-disciplinary, and integrated alcohol, drug,
and mental health program using evidence-based approaches to develop and maintain clean and healthy lifestyles. Each person who enters FSR undergoes
a screening, evaluation, and assessment to determine the acuity of his or her problem, as well as what level of care is needed. An individualized treatment plan will be developed in conjunction with the client at this time.

All clients in the FSR program will attend acupuncture and process groups, and will develop community-based support systems. FSR is culturally competent and provides gender-specific programming.

Our program offers level 2.1 intensive outpatient treatment five days a week. This client-centered approach helps people to develop and support a culture and community of recovery through the following services:

  • Acupuncture
  • Men’s group
  • Women’s group
  • Breaking Through group (beginning addiction education)
  • Digging Deeper group (advanced process group)
  • Relapse Prevention group
  • Mindful Meditation group
  • On-site recovery support groups

FSR mentors are also available to anyone living with HIV/AIDS for support
and referrals.

New clients may wish to save time by completing the New Client Finding and Sustaining Recovery Packet in advance and bringing it with them. Please speak with a Quest Center FSR counselor beforehand.

New DUII Program and Education
Quest Center’s Finding and Sustaining Recovery II Program has launched. The program is certified by the state to provide programming and education for people with DUII (driving under the influence of intoxicants) offenses. Our certified alcohol and drug counselors are culturally competent and trained in diversity issues. Their priority is providing quality client care that enables individual growth and success in treatment.

Those referred by alcohol and drug evaluation specialists (ADES) for DUII alcohol and drug treatment will be assessed by our counselors to develop an individualized treatment plan. Unlike some other states, there is not a set amount of time that a person will be in alcohol and drug treatment. The average length of programming is 90 days. This is based on individual treatment needs, individual engagement and participation in alcohol and drug treatment, and individual progress.

During treatment, participants will be required to demonstrate at least 90 consecutive days of abstinence from alcohol and other drugs. FSR II offers evidence-based practices, providing the best quality of treatment.

Flexible programming is available evenings. Individuals will attend two groups weekly and participate in a one-on-one counseling session every other week.

  • Groups: $40 each
