Today is international overdose awareness day.
With substance use disorder
There are Multiple Pathways to Recovery
From the grassroots to the Governor’s office, Maine is coming together for those affected by the opioid epidemic. We are on a mission to save lives and strengthen communities, and we’re putting all the options on the table. Because if we want to give people a fighting chance, we need to keep them alive, safe, and supported throughout their journey of active use and recovery.
Wherever you are in your journey,
You’re Not Alone.
