Mission & Vision Statement

As a recovery community organization, PRCC’s mission is to provide support, education and resources for people recovering from and affected by addiction, and to spread the message of hope throughout the state of Maine.

PRCC’s vision is that every person affected by addiction in Maine will have direct access to a local recovery community center that provides support, education, and individual resources to enhance their ability to heal, strengthen and grow in their recovery pathway, throughout all stages of their journey.

PRCC on Bishop Street in Portland provides a safe haven for people in recovery and offers a home for meetings and activities devoted to recovery from substance use disorder and other addictions. PRCC is operated by staff and volunteers who are passionate about recovery, and every activity is designed to help people with their daily recovery efforts. PRCC offers peer support to individuals who use a variety of recovery pathways, and we honor each person’s unique recovery journey. We know from experience that successful recovery from substance use disorder(s) requires support from others. Our center welcomes all who are taking steps to recover.

Throughout Maine, PRCC supports the development of new recovery community centers so that every community in Maine can have access to their own local center. By providing trainings, resources, and technical support to new and developing centers, PRCC’s Maine Recovery Hub offers a community of mutual support among the centers that mirrors how we serve our recovery community. Since the Maine Recovery Hub program began in 2018, Maine’s recovery community center population has grown from 3 to 17. And we are just getting started.

The bottom line: PRCC carries hope and support to those who recovery and their loved ones in a community setting. Alone we can’t, but together we can.
