Mental Health Communities

Residential Recovery Homes

At New Communities, we operate seven mental health residential recovery homes for adults that are staffed 24 hours a day. These services focus on working in partnership with individuals, their guardians, and their families to achieve meaningful individually-defined recovery in the least restrictive community setting. In addition to providing group and individual rehabilitative services, the mental health recovery homes offer comfortable, inviting, and home-like environments, private accommodations and qualified mental health professionals who can administer or assist you in medication administration, offer emotional support and promote and help you maintain the level of independence you want and deserve.

How to Access Services

Access to the residential recovery homes begins with a referral to New Communities. Our team is available to determine whether you meet the eligibility requirements. Referrals to New Communities residential programs also require prior approval from the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) through the Office of Aging and Disability Services (OADS), or the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services division (SAMHS).

"For many of our residents, coming out of state institutions, we're not just a place to live, but a way to live that is focused on recovery and choice. We have a new resident in one of our group homes, an artist, who hasn't painted in years. Now he says he's thinking of picking up his brush again."
