I am a former beneficiary of CAHOOTS' services. At a time in my life when all things fell apart and I was homeless and unwell. Everything Ebony says when she describes the model is true, it's not a pat description you might find in a brochure. They work with heart and relatability and are trained to calm rather than elevate situations. They dress in black. Angel black ninjas from a parent agency called White Bird. It makes sense to me. CAHOOTS put me squarely on the path to wellness. The rest has been up to me but they gave the needed lift. May they continue to share their wealth with others for the greater good.

Chrysalis has been a positive part of my life for quite a while. I wouldn’t be who I am today without this place. I came 7 years ago to work on making some changes and have recently come back for a little preventative tune up and some emotional education... I couldn’t be happier with the services at Chrysalis, then and especially now! The councilors are top notch and the array of support here is unsurpassed. I’ve been to a few other outpatient treatment programs and this one surely sets itself aside! I just want to say thank you to the entire team of people that make it happen, the ones I know and especially the ones I don’t know or don’t get to see in action, You are all appreciated!!! Thanks for keeping it real, friends!

Thank you for taking care of me last night. Heat exhaustion; political imbroglio, babies and families.... It all hit me at once. Being at a Dead concert - in your care - must have been the safest place I could be to fall to pieces. Thank you for holding your hands out to catch and comfort me. It was a spectacular show!

CAHOOTS is an integral part of the behavioral health community in Eugene. They are able to offer evaluation and recommendations for those in crisis without involving law enforcement. White Bird clinic is one of the many organizations that participate in the Out of the Darkness walk. A huge thank you to the folks at White Bird and the CAHOOTS staff for their efforts to help people in crisis in the Eugene/Springfield area.
