A plan for Tillamook County
It is estimated that 1,700 people in Tillamook County live with opioid use disorder (OUD).
Opioid Use Response for Tillamook County (OUR Tillamook) was created to provide OUD support, resources and programs to anyone in Tillamook County.
Starting in 2019, this group created a community-centered plan to address needs and opportunities around addiction treatment and recovery in Tillamook County. They started by writing a needs assessment, strategic plan, workforce plan
and sustainability plan to address needs found. There are three categories in the strategic plan:
1) Harm Reduction and Education,
2) Pain Management and Prescribing Practices,
3) Therapy and Recovery.
In October 2020, the consortium began implementing activities in these three categories. The work on these plans will happen over three years.
