MaineGeneral Residential Services
provides high-quality extended care for individuals with chronic addiction to substances who need long-term, supervised residential substance use disorder treatment.
Our program is offered at two locations - Augusta and Sidney - for individuals who have had long-term difficulty with substance use disorder issues and also may need support with a mental health diagnosis.
Our program is licensed by the state of Maine to provide services to those with co-occurring disorders.
The 9 Spruce Street, Augusta, location
can accommodate eight women and the 2093 Belgrade Road, Sidney location
can accommodate 12 men.
Staff and clinicians on each site provide counseling, assistance and support for our residents 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
Our Treatment Approach
Treatment is up to nine months in an abstinence-based setting, supported by:
- Daily individual and group counseling
- Psychiatric services and support for those with mentla health diagnoses
- Regular participation in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and/or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings
- Off-site medical care and referrals
- Access to immediate emergency services
- Assistance in acquiring benefits - food stamps, MaineCare and other community support services - depending on need and eligibility
- Extensive needs assessments for coordinating aftercare treatment
These services are designed to help adults get the extra structure and treatment they need to stay clean and/or sober and live successfully in their communities.
Our mission is to provide needed services regardless of an individual's ability to pay.
Our program is supported by MaineCare reimbursement and grant funding. We encourage individuals who can benefit from our program - or their families - to apply for MaineCare coverage.
