Recovery is the overall goal of every treatment and recovery support program that exists in our state. It is a lifelong and personal journey requiring courage and commitment to live in new ways that strengthen a healthy lifestyle free of alcohol or illicit drugs.
MAAR is Maine's leader in creating a recovery oriented system of care for our state, which is centered around the expressed needs of those in recovery. Nationally, this transformative movement strives to change the ways that all recovery support services are developed and provided. MAAR works to create community based peer support programs that build recovery capital.
