A HEALTHY COMMUNITY IS STRONGER THAN ANY DRUG – A COMMUNITY FORUM

February 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Camden-Library-Maine

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 19 @ 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

‘Recovery Residences’ are non-medical homes designed to support recovery from substance use disorders, providing substance-free living environments to help individuals transition from various situations and settings to healthier places in their recovery (e.g., maintaining their sobriety, obtaining employment, establishing more permanent residence, etc.). The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition will be opening a Recovery Residence at 63 Washington Street in Camden in the summer of 2019 for women in recovery and their children.

Ultimately, the support of our entire community is the key that will overcome drug addiction that surrounds us. Love, support and a healthy community is stronger than any drug. Support of homes of this kind will help many families find hope and healing. Please attend and learn more.

Dr. Ira Mandel will give a presentation and answer questions about the new women’s recovery residence in Camden. He is a Camden resident and a retired physician who treated people for opioid addiction for 12 years prior to his retirement. He is the founder and president of the Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition, the owner of 63 Washington Street.
