Maine DHHS announces Request for Proposals for Recovery Centers

Maine DHHS has put out a Request For Proposal for Recovery Centers around the state.

This means that the State of Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Office of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHS) are seeking proposals to provide the service of managing Peer-Run Recovery Centers.

This means many changes for Maine’s Recovery Centers and social clubs!!

​By initiating this RFP, DHHS seeks to transform all Recovery-oriented community services into Peer-Run Recovery Center’s. Peer-Run Recovery Centers are evidence-based and are used along with traditional behavioral health care treatment. Peer-run service programs have been evidenced to significantly improve participants’ well-being (hope, empowerment, goal attainment and meaningful life) and to empower participants by promoting self-efficacy, personal-accountability, and self-esteem. The structure, values and provision of the service must be consistent with the Consumer-Operated Service Program (COSP) model.​
