Research conducted in New England reveals that 75% of clients in long-term residential treatment have been there multiple times, a fact1 that reinforces the chronic nature of addiction. One reason Maine welcomed Aware Recovery Care. Our goal is to stem the rise in overdose deaths with our innovative, in-home addiction rehab modality that treats substance use disorder like diabetes or hypertension—a chronic condition that doesn't disappear in 30 days.
"We have to recognize (addiction) isn't a character flaw or a moral failing. It's a chronic disease of the brain that deserves the same compassion that any other chronic illness does."
