PORTLAND, Ore.– With 84 treatment beds Clackamas County Substance Abuse Program is helping people from 18 to well into their 60’s stop the cycle of alcohol, drug abuse and a life of crime. The Men’s CSAP Program started in January 1997.  The  Women’s CSAP Program started in September 2009. Currently 61% of the clients who enter successfully complete the program.  87% of clients were alcohol and drug free one year after completing CSAP.  85% of men and 89% of women have not been arrested for a new crime after completing CSAP.

In the past 5 years Women’s CSAP has served 172 clients.  The Men’s Program has served 366 clients during the same time period.  The program boasts a 75% success rate. One of the most critical parts of the CSAP Program is that probation officers get in among the inmates at the Clackamas County Jail .   They ask inmates about what their daily life is like .  What they need.  The information gathered helps with determining if inmates are good candidates for the CSAP program.
