Telephone Recovery Support

Telephone Recovery Support is available and completely free and confidential. We believe that a phone call can encourage someone to feel connected, valued and cared about. We believe a phone call can save a life.

PRCC’s Telephone Recovery Support program is a peer-to-peer recovery support program that allows recovering people a way to give back, strengthen their own recovery, and support others who are seeking recovery.

Sign up for Telephone Recovery Support in the Portland area by calling 207-553-2575 or emailing kim@portlandrecovery.org.

Telephone Recovery Support is also available through regional recovery community centers throughout the state of Maine. Find a center near you at the Maine Recovery Hub.

Recovery Coaching

Recovery Coaching helps individuals in recovery identify their own unique pathways to a joyful life. Recovery Coaches provide a framework for setting goals and looking at all areas of life that are important to the recovering person. They help with identifying and obtaining community-based services and resources.

PRCC Recovery Coaches promote recovery, remove barriers, build recovery capital, and connect recoverees with recovery support. Recovery coaches are not therapists, counselors, clinicians, clergy or 12 step sponsors. They occupy a very unique and distinct lane on the recovery highway.

Recovery coaching at Portland Recovery Community Center is provided by trained recovery coaches, FREE of charge. Anyone who is seeking to initiate or sustain their recovery is welcome. All Recovery Coaches have completed a minimum of 30 hours of Recovery Academy Certified Training.

Sign-up for Recovery Coaching in the Portland area by calling 207-553-2575 or emailing kim@portlandrecovery.org.

Recovery Coaching is also available through regional recovery community centers throughout the state of Maine. Find a center near you at the Maine Recovery Hub.
