Waldo Encourages Community Assisted Recovery Efforts
Mission: To build a collaborative, non-judgmental, environment to support addiction recovery through education, advocacy, and compassionate community action.
WeCARE has begun the promotion of addiction recovery awareness and education of untreated and/or under treated drug and alcohol addiction in Waldo County through public service events and civic presentations.
WeCARE has an immediate goal to create a team of Recovery Support Partners. These trained Recovery Support Partners, will provide practical information and compassionate concern to people afflicted with untreated and/or under treated drug and alcohol addiction.
WeCARE plans a recovery community center, to serve as a visible, de-stigmatized, presence for those who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction. From this base of operation, a safe, friendly, and cooperative environment would be created to begin or continue the recovery process. We envision a referral service to fulfill basic needs. We see self-help group meetings along with varied recovery-based choices.
WeCARE envisions, in our recovery community center, a residential setting for people in early-sustained recovery. The Restorative Justice Project of midcoast Maine has indicated their interest in our mission. They understand the need for a transitional/residential type setting for the men they mentor at the Maine Coastal Regional Re-entry Center.
WeCARE visualizes a self-sustained Recovery Art & Crafts Cafe as part of our community recovery center, managed by people in recovery, supported by caring patrons, local artists, and public-spirited humanitarians.
WeCARE believes with education, advocacy, and compassionate community action, people will begin to understand drug and alcohol addiction for what it is, a malady, which affects the body, mind, and spirit of its’ sufferers.
