SCHEDULE

Our calendar of groups, meetings, and events held at PRCC is updated frequently so be sure to check back often! If you see something missing, would like to add an item, or have any questions, please give us a call or stop by.

TELEPHONE RECOVERY SUPPORT

We believe that a phone call can make someone feel wanted, included 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. We offer weekly telephone calls to support people in recovery. 

Through this program, trained PRCC volunteers call individuals seeking recovery who have requested this service to ask how their recovery is progressing, and to connect them to the resources they need to achieve and maintain recovery. Our volunteers offer support, compassion, and resources.

Telephone Recovery Support:

  • It is completely free and confidential. 
  • All calls are made from the PRCC offices, Monday to Friday between 9 am and 6 pm. 
  • The program is available to anyone who lives in the state of Maine. 
  • Telephone Recovery Support may be initiated or discontinued by the Recoveree at anytime. 

Individuals interested in signing up for TRS will need to provide contact information, preferred time and date, location, and if we can leave a message on their voicemail.

Note: If an individual in a residential (inpatient) treatment setting or in a correctional facility completes the application and consent forms, encourage them to indicate their discharge or release date, so the PRCC office knows to contact them after that and can assist with transition.

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. All Recovery Coaches have completed a minimum of 30 hours of Recovery Academy Certified Training.

PRCC Recovery Coaches:

  • Promote recovery
  • Remove barriers
  • Build recovery capital
  • 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.

OPERATION HOPE

Portland Recovery Community Center partners with Scarborough Police Department in the innovative Operation HOPE initiative, providing connections to treatment and recovery resources whenever someone seeking help for addiction comes through the police department’s doors. Operation HOPE’s mission is to enable Mainers suffering from addiction to seek help and experience recovery.

Operation HOPE allows individuals to come to the police department and voluntarily turn in drugs and paraphernalia without fear of arrest.  Instead, they are treated with compassion, care, respect and concern, and assisted with placement into treatment.


Operation HOPE relies heavily on the help of “Angels.”  Portland Recovery Community Center recruits, trains, and dispatches these Angel volunteers to the police department. Angels are compassionate individuals from the recovery community who care about helping others and who carry the message of hope.

The program aims to reduce overdose deaths and help people access lifesaving health treatment through its collaborative partnerships, regardless of insurance or income. Mainers from every corner of the State are turning to Operation HOPE for access to recovery services. Over 350 individuals have been helped by Operation HOPE to date. PRCC serves as fiscal sponsor for Operation Hope. Make a donation to Operation Hope.

TYPES OF GROUPS

Meetings that create a safe and positive environment for people in all pathways to recovery. Meetings are typically discussion based, but the format has the freedom to be free flowing to fit the needs of the group.

This meeting is run by members of the non-profit family restored. This meeting is run by people in recovery offering their experience and hope for family members of people in both active use and recovery.

We are a community of people dedicated to the practices of mindfulness, compassion, and kindness to heal the pain and suffering that addiction has caused in our lives. Refuge Recovery is grounded in Buddhist principles and practices.

A meeting where men can go and fellowship, and gain a deeper connection through meditation.

A meeting for fathers in recovery. This meeting will cover topics such as support, and issues that may come up as a parent.

A Fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others recover from their addiction. We offer multiple CA meetings a week, most are speaker discussion meetings.

In our Fellowship you will see one heroin addict helping another, freely passing on their experience to the next person who is desperately searching for an answer to their own heroin addiction.”

A fellowship of men and women who have recovered from addiction and are committed to helping those who still suffer. We have recovered by using the twelve steps as outlined in the book of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. PRCC offers a variety of AA meetings, ranging from meditation discussion, ticket meetings, and step focused meetings.

The leading self-empowering recovery support group. Our participants learn tools for addiction recovery based on the latest scientific research and participate in a world-wide community which includes free, self-empowering, science based mutual help groups.

HOPE is based on Attitudinal Healing, a cross cultural method of healing that helps remove blocks such as judgment, blame, shame that are in the way of experiencing lasting love, peace and happiness.

Wellbriety is a movement which seeks to break the cycle of hurt caused by alcoholism and other addiction, with an emphasis on Native spiritual traditions. Wellbriety has incorporated parts of the approaches of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous into a spirituality based largely on modern Lakota spirituality.

Fridays @ 6:30pm

Grief Recovery After Substance Passing (GRASP) provides grief recovery for those who have lost someone due to substance use. GRASP provides compassionate support, meetings and resources. We have suffered this same kind of loss and we have found the love and connection that only those who have lived this loss can give another. And while the pain of this loss will always be with us, we have found through GRASP that we don’t have to walk the road that is our pain alone.

Open to all relatives and friends suffering the loss of a loved one from substances.

Eating Disorders Anonymous (EDA) is a 12-step based approach to recovery from eating disorders and for anyone who wants freedom from rigidity and control around food, exercise, body image, and other forms of disordered eating. People can and do fully recover from having an eating disorder. In EDA, balance, not abstinence is our goal. Recovery means living without obsessing on food, weight and body image.
