Mission Statement

The mission of the recovery residences through Wabanaki Healing and Recovery is to provide a safe, substance free, and culturally healing living environment for indigenous people to transition away from a life of substance use, allowing them to develop meaningful and independent lives.

Who do we serve?

Wabanaki Healing and Recovery (WHR) Recovery Homes are not-for-profit recovery residences located in Bangor, Maine and Millinocket, Maine. Our residences provide temporary housing for indigenous people from the Wabanaki Communities throughout Maine with a history of problematic drug and alcohol use, who are passionate about turning their lives around and are serious about working on their own personal recovery. While our homes are open to all paths of recovery, there is a strong focus on rebuilding the connection to traditional indigenous healing and ceremony. All our recovery residences accept residents that are on Medically Assisted Treatment, that are prescribed to help them manage and recover from their addictions and/or Co-Occurring Disorders. The homes do not accept people on the Maine Sex Offender Registry. The recovery residences through Wabanaki Healing and Recovery are open to people of all income levels, with sliding move-in costs and residence fees set at roughly the equivalent of a day and a half a week of entry-level wage labor. Residents must be capable of either working, going to school, or volunteering 20+ hours a week within 30 days of arrival. The average duration of residency is three to six months. Above all, Wabanaki Healing and Recovery offers a home to indigenous people who are genuinely willing to take direction, live communally and who will strive every day to build a healthier life.

Commitment to Diversity/Non-Discrimination

The recovery residences at Wabanaki Healing and Recovery are culturally specific programs designed for Native Americans. Wabanaki Healing and Recovery does not discriminate based on race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, Tribal origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of our activities or operations. These included, but are not limited to, hiring/firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. Wabanaki Healing and Recovery is an equal opportunity employer and service provider.

Commitment to Community

Wabanaki Healing and Recovery is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our residents, staff, volunteers, subcontractors, and vendors. We are committed to our residents and will take all steps to provide the best opportunity to stabilize their recovery and meet their individualized goals. Wabanaki Healing and Recovery is dedicated to collaborating with professional counselors, case managers, Department of Corrections, peer support, recovery coaches, family, stakeholders, and other supporters from throughout the Tribal network, local communities and beyond. Establishing, sustaining, and growing these relationships will be at the forefront of our priorities, for all residents and staff.
