Hooper Detoxification Stabilization Center (DSC) offers compassionate treatment for people coming off drugs, alcohol or other substances. David P. Hooper, our center’s namesake, was a talented track star and aspiring politician. He also struggled with alcohol use. Hooper died in the Portland city jail in the early 1970s, when Oregon still defined alcohol addiction as a crime, not a disease. Our building bears his name as a reminder that there’s a better way to care for people struggling with substance use and addiction. 

Today, Hooper DSC serves over 3,000 people a year in a safe, inclusive space. Many of our staff are in recovery themselves and have experienced the challenges of withdrawal and early stabilization. They serve as reminders that recovery is possible, and often provide the first rays of hope for the journey ahead.

Inpatient Program

Hooper’s inpatient program offers 24/7 withdrawal management and stabilization services for people in the early stages of recovery from alcohol, opioids and other drugs.

We understand and can care for the complex needs of clients who need withdrawal management services while pregnant or managing diabetes, high blood pressure or other health concerns.

How to Access Care

You can walk into Hooper by 7:30 am, Monday – Friday for our morning triage. 

Hooper is closed on Independence Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

We admit people based on the severity of their needs and our capacity, not on a “first come, first serve” basis. 

If you are not admitted by 7:45 am, we encourage you to try again the next business day.


Preparing for your stay

Most people stay from three to eight days. We provide all your basic needs, including meals, clothes, shoes, hygiene kits, towels, and bedding. 

If you have food allergies or necessary dietary restrictions, we will accommodate them. If you have other food preferences, ask us and we will do our best. 


  • State-issued driver’s license or ID
  • Insurance verification (if applicable)
  • A 10-day supply of any medications you are taking, including insulin and inhalers, in the original packaging (required)
  • Your own T-shirts, socks, undergarments, books and journals (optional)

Do not bring: 

  • Controlled substances such as Lyrica (pregabalin), Ativan (lorazepam), Ambien (zolpidem), Adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine), oxycodone, methadone, or your own Suboxone (buprenorphine). If you bring these items, we will require someone to pick them up before the end of the business day, or we must destroy them.

  • Jackets and hoodies are not allowed in the milieu

Outpatient Care

If you want the flexibility of a medical evaluation for your substance use without staying on site, Hooper’s outpatient program may be a good option. Our medical providers can conduct an assessment and offer personalized recommendations. Additionally, our outpatient care coordinator can support you in finding treatment support services through CCC or our partner agencies.
