De Paul is an independent, nonprofit agency that provides treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. Treatment is provided to men, women and, especially, young people who cannot pay for services. It is an accredited, independent nonprofit agency funded in part by Multnomah and Washington counties, the state of Oregon and private donations.
De Paul was founded in Portland in 1974 by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to shelter homeless alcoholics. It became an independent treatment center in 1978, the first in the country to treat late-stage alcoholics. De Paul's facilities include its 91-bed adult treatment center in downtown Portland, a 40-bed youth residential and outpatient treatment facility in Northeast Portland and outpatient services in Hillsboro.
