Our mission is to support recovery from addiction in Mid-Coast Maine. We were created to support individuals and families to find help and healing for this challenging problem. While we understand the impact that addiction can have on lives, we also know that it is possible to heal and grow.
We offer multiple services to support creating a healthy environment for families, healing the effects of drug addiction and re-integration into the community. We offer proven approaches to successfully connect individuals and families experiencing unstable or unsafe housing to safe and secure housing.
The Friends House, established in 2018, is located in Rockland, Maine, a coastal town in Mid-Coast Maine. We are certified through the Maine Association of Recovery Residences (MARR), which reflects the high standards of required by MARR. We provide a supportive and caring environment which allows residents the opportunity to work on their recovery free from substance use.
Residents enjoy a spacious home with ample living space and an outdoor area. There are eight bedrooms with two full bathrooms and a large kitchen area. The first-floor common area provides the residents with the opportunity to interact with others as well as watch television. There is a quiet space available to read, access a computer or for quiet reflection. The basement includes a washer/dryer and space for residents to exercise and work out if so desired.
It is our intent to provide a peaceful community to all residents, therefore, program rules and guidelines which must be adhered. Additionally, an affordable monthly rent is discussed with residents prior to move in.
