Recovery is a complex and dynamic process encompassing all the positive benefits to physical, mental and social health that can happen when people with mental illness or an addiction to alcohol or drugs, or their family members, get the help they need. Recovery is the overall goal of every treatment 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 and a positive future.
The Alliance believes that recovery works, and recovery saves lives.
Not only do many of our Member Providers offer Peer Recovery supports for Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder, the Alliance also invests directly in working to promote a recovery oriented system of care in Maine.
