Construction Begins On Recovery And Treatment Center

With all city permits secured, site work began in early January for the future Samaritan Treatment and Recovery Services adult residential and outpatient center. Remodeling of the existing building at 5840 NW Biggs St. in Newport and construction of added space will be completed during the spring of 2025, at a projected cost of $11.7 million. “A ton of work has taken place in the background to bring us to this point where we can actually see the work happening,” said Lesley Ogden, MD, CEO of the two Samaritan Health Services hospitals in Lincoln County.

“I am relieved the project is moving along, yet there is also an undercurrent of ‘hurry, hurry’

because the need is so great. Substance use disorder is a terrible and dangerous menace in our society that is killing and harming our loved ones,” she said. “I cannot stress strongly enough how important this center will be to the lives of those people who choose a path toward recovery and can find hope and help here in Lincoln County.” Once completed, the 8,300-square-foot facility will have 16 inpatient beds to serve adults ages 18 and older who are experiencing substance use disorder.

Residential treatment and intensive outpatient programs include group and individual therapy, medication-assisted treatment and peer-delivered services. Patients will be accepted from across Oregon, with priority given to esidents of Lincoln County.

This is the second residential treatment center created by Samaritan.

The other one opened in Lebanon, Oregon, in 2020. As a nonprofit health care provider, Samaritan doesn’t turn anyone away for insurance type or an inability to pay. The need for the facility is great. Oregon ranks second in the nation for substance use disorder

and 50th in access to treatment. Inpatient treatment is a critical first step in the recovery

process for many individuals, but there are currently no inpatient services in Lincoln County and limited outpatient services available.
