A new substance treatment facility for Spokane’s homeless community opened downtown on Tuesday.

Compassionate Addiction Treatment is a behavioral health agency running several outpatient programs, including medication-assisted treatment to help the homeless suffering from substance abuse.

The facility also accepts walk-in appointments. The only requirement to receive treatment is that clients have opioid use disorder and a desire to get better.

CAT provides a living room style space for those receiving treatment. Anyone is welcome to visit, have a cup or coffee, make art or participate in peer-supported meetings.

CAT is founded upon several core values, including empathy, compassion, inclusively, respect and relationships. To learn more, click here.
