The Maine Alliance for Addiction Recovery is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.









The Maine Alliance for Addiction Recovery is the statewide coalition that organizes people in recovery from a substance use disorder and recovery allies into a unified recovery presence within Maine. We are a statewide recovery community organization that represents the many pathways of recovery. MAAR members and supporters celebrate recovery every day – we know firsthand that recovery works.​​



Recovery is the overall goal of every treatment and recovery support program that exists in our state. It is a lifelong and personal journey requiring courage and commitment to live in new ways that strengthen a healthy lifestyle free of alcohol or illicit drugs.
The Maine Alliance for Addiction Recovery is Maine’s leader in developing the concept and creating a recovery oriented system of care for Maine, centered around the expressed needs of those in recovery.  Nationally, this transformative movement strives to change the ways that all recovery support services are developed and provided.  MAAR works to create community based peer support programs that build and sustain recovery.
