We opened a new and improved NorthStar Treatment Clinic on Monday, November 13.

New Location, Same Dedication to Community

Earlier this year, CRMHS began moving forward with an expansion of the NorthStar Treatment Clinic in order to serve more individuals in our community.

The new NorthStar 2.0 clinic at 7105 NE 40th St. in Vancouver, is its own space (separate from Columbia River’s main clinic) in the former Elmer’s Restaurant location near SW 40th Street and Andresen Road.

CRMHS Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kevin Fischer shares, “This space will include state-of-the-art technology to serve clients; improved patient privacy; and adequate treatment-room space to serve client needs. We’re very excited to bring opioid addiction treatment in Clark County to the 21st century and beyond.”

Clinic to Offer Easier Access and Even Better Care

Staff members have been involved in the facility’s design, adding their experiences with client care to ensure that all clients are comfortable during their unique journey to recovery.

“We really want our patients to feel that the environment reflects the care we’re providing. We also want clients to know we respect them and want to provide care in a dignified way,” states CRMHS CEO Victor Jackson.

The opening of the new, expanded clinic will allow CRMHS to further leverage its opioid resources and services in Southwest Washington.

Getting Treatment to the Community

Clark County is in the midst of a fentanyl epidemic that has escalated over the last three years, with overdose death rates climbing in our area by almost 100%.

Columbia River Mental Health Services is leading to bring solutions to our community’s problems. Operating Southwest Washington’s largest opiate treatment program at the NorthStar Treatment Clinic, CRMHS has provided 957 individuals with substance-use treatment in the last 12 months.

New Location, Same Dedication to Community

The NorthStar Treatment Clinic offers same-day opioid treatment for anyone looking to begin their journey to recovery. CRMHS’s team of therapists, case managers, peer support specialists, physicians, and employment and housing support specialists look at all aspects of people’s health and work with them to achieve their recovery goals.

NorthStar 2.0 couldn’t have happened without continued support from those in our community like you!
