Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition
The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition was originally created on April 12, 2016 as a grassroots, volunteer-based organization following an impassioned community forum at the Rockland City Council Chambers on February 4th dealing with the lack of local action in response to the worsening opiate addiction crisis.
Our Mission is to reduce the rate and consequences of drug addiction in Midcoast Maine. MCRC strives to build awareness to this ever growing epidemic that continues to have a devastating effect on our entire community. MCRC provides programs, education and linkages to other local resources to individuals and families in recovery throughout Knox County, Lincolnville, Waldoboro & Friendship. Current Programs: Helping Inmates Succeed – providing non-clinical case management and resources to men at Knox County Jail in their transition back into the community Helping Families Succeed – providing non-clinical case management to individuals and their families affected by addiction Recovery Coaches– trained coaches available to listen, help and support an individual’s recovery through the many challenges such as, treatment, housing, employment and transportation. The Friends House - a recently purchased house in Rockland will soon open the doors to men in recovery needing a safe, sober, and supportive place to live. The house will provide a healing environment in which the men will spend time together to support each other, while establishing employment and connections to other local resources in the community that support their recovery.
