Addiction can be a terrible thing. It can potentially endanger your life, affect your loved ones, imperil your job and your future. And certainly, it’s a disease that usually can’t be conquered alone. Depending on the type and level of addiction, in-patient treatment may be necessary, along with a long-term plan for recovery. The Mercy Recovery Center offers the largest substance abuse treatment center in Maine for adults that treat the entire spectrum of substance abuse, from alcoholism to drug addiction – one step at a time…one day at a time…one person at a time.
