Addiction Recovery

Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition


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.

We are funded by donors who see the value of providing free communication tools to non-profits who otherwise could not afford to tell their story or make others aware of the critical issues they address. We couldn’t do it without you.
