Rockland, Maine (Oct. 9, 2017): Maine Behavioral Healthcare’s EMBARK program is now offering intensive group-based treatment for people in early recovery from substance use disorders. The six-week group treatment program focuses on providing education about substance use disorders and developing skills to manage the challenges of early recovery.

People with all types of substance use disorders are eligible and there is access to medication assisted treatment for people with severe opioid use disorders. The schedule is 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday: nine hours week for six weeks.

Using an evidence-based curriculum, the treatment includes Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness-based recovery. People with co-occurring mental health disorders are encouraged to participate. Commercial insurance is accepted, as well as MaineCare.

You can make a referral or access treatment by calling our Access Center at 1-844-292-0111 or calling the Rockland office at 701-4461.

EMBARK is a substance use program that offers access to any level of care depending on personal needs, using a combination of counseling and medication-assisted therapy to provide successful addiction treatment, even for those who may have tried before without success.
