Search Drug and Alcohol Rehabs in Maine by County

Last updated: 10 September 2021


Maine currently is struggling with a rampant heroin addiction problem. This has been a crisis area for the state for some time, and there has been little to no sign that it will get any better any time soon. Substance abuse has seemingly taken hold here and there has been little efforts taken in the name of trying to address these issues or to resolve them. The National Institute on Drug Abuse stated that Maine has never had this much heroin abuse before. Substance abuse is a nasty aspect of society that eats away at the moral fabric of families. Maine never really suffered with addiction to drugs and alcohol, until recently.

Fighting Drug and Alcohol Addiction with Inpatient Rehabilitation

The best way to tackle any type of addiction problem is with rehabilitation. More specifically, inpatient, residential, drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation is what is needed. With inpatient rehabilitation, anyone who is addicted to anything can beat their habit and make something new of their lives. This is by far the key method of address for those who are hooked on drugs and alcohol. Listed below are three such centers in Maine:

  • Day One Goodwill Hinckley is an effective rehab center in Hinckley, Maine that utilizes detox, group therapy, and one on one counseling to help addicts.
  • Rockland Metro Treatment Center is a Rockland area rehab center that utilizes short term treatment for addiction to both drugs and alcohol.
  • Lewiston, Maine has the Merrimack River Medical Services Inc. DBA Healthcare Resource Center. This program has a wide plethora of services for addicts of all ages, sexes, and income levels.

(The National Institute on Drug Abuse,, is a governmental organization tasked with helping people to learn more about substance abuse, and with helping people get into addiction rehab centers.)
