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 substance use treatment that is accessible and responsive to our diverse community.
We plan to begin offering services in 2025. The opening will occur in stages with some services starting before others.
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
- Withdrawal management (detox)
- Residential and outpatient treatment
- Transition services
- Health services
- Peer drop-in center
- Crisis services
- Co-located supports

Washington County's exciting new project will 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.
Holst Architecture recently completed the building design and in June 2023 the CATT project officially moved into the implementation phase. R&H Construction will lead the renovation and construction of the buildings that will house the CATT. R&H, in a unique partnership with Advanced Tribal LLC, will continue its commitment to equity, inclusion and celebrating diversity, which aligns perfectly with the foundational values of the CATT project.
When the CATT is open, CODA, Inc. will be the provider for intensive services. LifeWorks NW will continue to deliver 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 plan to offer on the "More Information" page.
