Background on Measure 110

In November of 2020, Ballot Measure 110 (known as the Drug Treatment & Recovery Act) was passed in Oregon. The Drug Treatment & Recovery Act is legislative measure designed to shift the way our state addresses substance use and abuse, by eliminating criminal consequences for low level drug possession, and connecting drug users to treatment & recovery services.

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs)

Measure 110 required the formation of a grant program to fund organizations across Oregon who provide behavioral health services to individuals with substance use disorders. These organizations are referred to as Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs). Behavioral Health Resource Networks have been created in each Oregon county, comprised of several individual BHRN partners who work together to ensure that a full range of services are being provided to address substance use and addiction recovery needs in the community.

Service Categories

The seven (7) service categories to be covered in each BHRN include:

  1. Screening & Comprehensive Behavioral Health Needs Assessments

Screenings are a quick and immediate assessments done for an individual at the time of first contact (whether that be on the phone or in person). Preliminary screenings and risk assessments serve to identify the initial needs of the client (i.e. substance use treatment, mental healthcare, housing, etc.), and ensure the client is provided immediate resources and referrals to address their needs. Screening is conducted by an addiction professional, and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every calendar day of the year.

Comprehensive behavioral health needs assessments (which include substance use disorder assessments) are more in-depth assessments that produce a diagnosis and level of care determination. These assessments are done by a certified alcohol and drug counselor or other credentialed addiction treatment professional. They are provided within 24 hours of an individual’s request for an assessment through a BHRN or statewide telephone line.

2. Individual Intervention Planning

Individual Intervention Planning generally involves one-on-one meetings with a recovery mentor or service provider to develop a plan centered around the client’s personal treatment goals. Individual Intervention Plans assist client’s with connecting to all the services, programs, and supports needed to meet their individual recovery goals.

3. Low Barrier Substance Use Treatment

Low-barrier substance use disorder treatment involves a broad variety of accessible and inclusive services that focus on addiction recovery, as well as harm-reduction. Such services may include one-on-one counseling, group therapy, outpatient treatment, peer-mentoring, and basic harm-reduction and substance use education.

4. Peer Support, mentoring, etc.

Peer Support services are provided by professionals who have lived experience with substance use disorder, as well as experience overcoming many of the pressures and barriers clients may be actively facing. Peer Support can include outreach, mentoring, youth support, and general recovery services.

5. Housing Services

Housing Services involve flexible and low barrier housing for individuals who use substances or have a substance use disorder. Housing services may involve transitional and recovery housing for individuals and families, or rental assistance such as vouchers, rapid-rehousing, eviction prevention, and direct financial assistance.

6. Harm Reduction Intervention

Harm Reduction Intervention involves many different types of services that seek to minimize the negative health, social, and legal impacts associated with substance use. Harm Reduction services may include needle exchange programs, overdose prevention and reversal, referrals for STI, HIV, and Hepatitis testing, and education on safer substance use.

7. Supported Employment

Supported Employment services seek to assist clients in preparing for, obtaining, and maintaining employment. This support is built around the personal career and education goals of the client, and includes help throughout the entire employment process; resume building, job applications, interviews, onboarding, and ongoing training and support.

ITN will be providing #4 Peer Support & #5 Housing Services in specified BHRNs for the specified counties.
