Healthy Acadia has placed 30 AmeriCorps RecoveryCorps Members as Recovery Coaches in the northern rural Maine counties of Aroostook, Hancock, Kennebec, Knox, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Waldo, and Washington.
At the end of the first program year, the RecoveryCorps members will be responsible for serving at least 400 people experiencing opioid use disorder through peer recovery coaching and increasing education and awareness about recovery coaching and the recovery process. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage at least 60 volunteers who will be engaged in recovery coaching.
