It seems like not a day goes by without a Mainer tragically losing their life to addiction. With so many of our neighbors struggling with this disease every day, Joe is inspired by the work of one organization working to address this crisis. Day One provides prevention and treatment programs for Maine youth. Its services address drug and alcohol use. Treatment programs for substance use include Outpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Residential and Homeless Youth Services. We also work with incarcerated youth. Day One serves youth and families from all over Maine. Its services include training and education, assessment, screening, referrals and treatment for individuals, groups, families, schools, and communities throughout Maine.
Addiction is a crisis that has touched nearly every Mainer, whether directly or indirectly. Joe encourages everyone to learn more about Day One here and consider lending a helping hand.
