What is the CATT?

The Center for Addictions Triage and Treatment (CATT) is a project to increase addictions treatment capacity in Washington County. Upon its completion it will add 86 new treatment beds, a peer drop-in center and many other features. Our plan is to create a comprehensive center for treatment that is accessible and responsive to our diverse community.

The CATT is tentatively scheduled to open in late 2024 or early 2025.

We are proud of the fact that the CATT is being developed by our community, for our community. It will provide rapid access to multiple types of substance use treatment, including: 

  • Assessment and triage
  • Sobering
  • Withdrawal management (detox)
  • Residential and outpatient treatment
  • Transition services
  • Health services
  • Peer drop-in center
  • Crisis services
  • Co-located supports
Community members provide messages of hope about being in recovery from problem substance use.

Project development

Washington County is working on an exciting new project to add substance use disorder care for adults in our community. The Center for Addictions Triage and Treatment (CATT) will be a place where adults struggling with problem substance use can get services and supports. 

From the beginning, this project has been community-driven. Over two hundred people, from a variety of cultural backgrounds, have provided input to ensure the CATT will work for our community. 

In September 2022 the CATT project moved into the building design phase. Holst Architecture has begun the initial building design and CODA, Inc. will be the provider for intensive services. LifeWorks NW will continue to provide crisis services and Solutions Group NW has been chosen as the outpatient provider for the Community Services Building. You can read more about the locations and services we hope to offer on the "Definitions, FAQs and Service Locations" page.
