Providing prevention, education, and outpatient treatment services for people affected by substance abuse, chemical dependency, and related mental health disorders.
Acadia Family Center is a licensed substance abuse agency that provides outpatient treatment and resources for recovery on Mount Desert Island and surrounding communities. We offer a continuum of treatment services which include outpatient counseling for alcohol and drug abuse/addiction, counseling for those affected by another’s addiction, outreach and prevention.
Our experienced clinicians provide services to adults, adolescents, and families who wish to overcome addiction to alcohol, illegal and prescription drugs and related mental health disorders in a supportive and caring environment.
Our treatment philosophy is recovery oriented, strengths based, and rooted in resilience. We utilize traditional cognitive behavioral therapies as well as alternative and expressive art therapies.
In our view the best treatment is prevention; the active, assertive process of creating conditions that promote well-being. In holding to that view, we prioritized prevention activities in local schools.
