Addiction to drugs or alcohol has become an all too common in mid-coast Maine, taking its toll on individuals and families throughout our communities.
The good news is that it does not need to ruin lives and destroy families: The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition (MCRC) is a nonprofit organization that was created to support individuals and families to find help and healing for this challenging problem.
The beginning of this new year, it is a good time to reflect on the past year and to look forward to what is ahead in 2024. Last year was a challenging year with drug addiction and overdoses at an all time high. As the drug overdose death rate continues to increase in Maine, families are being affected, especially children. This is a clear indicator of the urgent need to reach out to those who are struggling with addiction and to provide services and resources.
We have seen firsthand how destructive addiction can be to those who are trying to stay sober in a time with limited resources and support. Our two recovery homes attempt to make a difference in the lives of the men, women, and children that we serve. They are designed provide a safe, sober and secure environment that is essential to recovery. “The house (home) gave me my daughter back” said a parent of a resident that is raising her child.
Your donation will help to ensure that our two recovery residences are available to those individuals who need help in a time of crisis.
