Community Integration

Recovery is much more than maintaining sobriety.

Recovery involves setting goals that will foster independence, family supports, self-confidence, and a new lifestyle that will lead to success in many areas of life while maintaining a sober lifestyle.

It is part of the treatment philosophy that residents have opportunities to practice their recovery skills in actual community settings. This begins by attending recovery support activities in the community, initiating weekend passes when eligible and treatment appropriate, and employment and/or continued education. Residents are encouraged to seek and obtain volunteering opportunities or employment during their latter phases of treatment to meet some of their community integration and transition needs.

Wellspring’s Infinity House works with its residents to address recovery, vocational, and employment needs. It has established linkages with community resources such as:

  • Partners for Peace (formerly Spruce Run) for domestic violence survivors
  • The Women’s Project to support services such as transportation and one on one community support
  • Penquis CAP for parenting classes and other parenting needs
  • The Bangor Area Recovery Network (BARN) for recovery supports
  • The Learning Center to acquire a GED
  • The Career Center for employment services, and more!
