Recovery Advocacy in Maine

PRCC organizes recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carries out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and works to mobilize resources.

Our advocacy is aimed at promoting policies that widen the doorways of recovery, and assure resources to increase the potential of finding and sustaining quality long-term recovery. The focus of public education is to eliminate the stigma of addiction and discriminatory policies and practices.

One way we do this by sharing the hope and healing power of recovery through our own stories and civic engagement. At PRCC we believe that it’s important to communicate the reality of long-term recovery, our stories of success, and the many pathways of recovery that are available.

Here are the 5 goals of Recovery Rising, PRCC’s recovery advocacy plan:

Reduce the stigma and discrimination of substance use disorders.

Improve equity and justice within the communities of recovery.

Improve the understanding and acceptance of multiple pathways of recovery.

Increase economic opportunity and employment opportunities for people in recovery.

Expand opportunities and participation in civic engagement.
