Recovery Coaching Supports and Services



Maine Alliance for Recovery Coaching Classes

​In accordance with CDC recommendations, we are canceling Recovery Coach training sessions through the end of April 2020. Healthy Acadia and our Maine-ARC community partners feel the most important thing we can all do is be educated about the virus and prepared to do our part in slowing its spread. Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of our community members. 

We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation that is impacting the country, our state, and events of all kinds. Please visit the Maine CDC website for tips on how to prevent the spread of the virus, what to do if you are experiencing symptoms, and more.
