The Lund Report is offering this coverage for free to better inform the public at this difficult time. But we need your support to help us stretch our resources.

CODA’s Opioid Treatment Program in Seaside remains open during the COVID-19 state-wide restriction measures and is accepting new patients. The clinic is open Mon. - Fri. 5:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and Sat. 5:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. It is located at 2367 S. Roosevelt Dr. 

As a behavioral health services nonprofit, CODA services for individuals experiencing substance use disorders are essential. All of its locations remain open for anyone seeking treatment. To limit person-to-person contact, we have rapidly transitioned our programs to offer most counseling services by telephone or video.  Individuals currently enrolled or seeking to enroll in treatment can still be seen in-person, though we encourage all who are able to take advantage of our supports by phone. 

These are anxious times, and many individuals newly considering recovery may be challenged to stay the course.  We know that community is critical to maintaining optimism for the future, and we understand how isolation may add to uncertainty.  Under Oregon’s new quarantine measures, the risk to those just beginning their recovery should not be ignored. CODA is maintaining connection with those we serve with all the means and technology we have available. To enroll yourself or refer someone you care for to CODA, please contact our centralized Admissions line at 855-SEE-CODA or visit www.codainc.org for more information. 

Founded in 1969, CODA uses a science-driven approach proven to help patients in their recovery. Through patient-centered care, community partnerships, and advocacy for effective public policy, CODA is dedicated to treating people whose health and quality of life are compromised by alcohol and drugs. Its Seaside Recovery Center uses a treatment model built on a half century of delivering hope and health. Its state-of-the-art outpatient location provides medication-assisted treatment, group and individual counseling for adults with opiate use disorder.
