The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition was originally created on April 12, 2016 as a grassroots, volunteer-based organization. It followed a passionate community forum held at the Rockland City Council Chambers. The hot topic dealt with the lack of local response to the worsening opiate addiction crisis.
The MCRC mission is to reduce the rate and consequences of drug addiction in Midcoast Maine. Workgroups have been developed to address addiction prevention/education, access to treatment, recovery support services, helping families and community, and criminal justice issues. MCRC is the only organization in Knox County addressing all aspects of drug addiction in the community.

Addiction to drugs or alcohol has become an all too common in mid-coast Maine, taking its toll on individuals and families throughout our communities.
The good news is that it does not need to ruin lives and destroy families: The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition (MCRC) is a nonprofit organization that was created to support individuals and families to find help and healing for this challenging problem.
The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition (MCRC) trains “recovery coaches” to support people in recovery as well as their families and friends when needed. Coaches undergo a formal 30-hour training following the Recovery Coach Academy program developed by the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery and sign a contract requiring they perform at very high ethical standards.
In today’s world, it can be easy to put a community second. Or third. Or tenth. Here at Midcoast Recovery, we know that community is the living, beating heart of who we are. The opposite of addiction isn’t sobriety; it’s community.
Community means that no one is disposable.
