MANCHESTER – Maine Recovery Center (MRC) is now open and conveniently located off Route 202 in Manchester. MRC provides rehabilitation services for opioid, alcohol, heroin and cocaine addictions, and more. MRC is a private, professional and supportive practice committed to helping patients manage both pain and addiction.
MRC’s results-oriented focus on recovery differentiates it from other programs and is the only privately owned and operated practice of its kind in central Maine.
“Our focus is on recovery, not addiction. Focusing on the solution and not the problem sets us apart from typical addiction treatment centers. Functionality in day-to-day life is our goal,” said practice owner and nationally recognized pain management specialist Douglas J. Jorgensen, DO.
The practice offers state of the art treatments including Vivitrol, an injectable prescription medicine (naltrexone) known for its long-acting ability to reduce alcohol cravings. Prescription treatment for alcohol use is a recent and exciting development based on a new understanding of how alcohol affects the brain. Additional treatment opportunities are expected to increase recovery success rates for those with alcohol dependencies. Previously, 28 day rehab or 12-step programs were the only options available for alcohol use recovery treatments. MRC also administers Suboxone Film, which is a discreet and effective treatment that reduces opioid cravings.
Addiction specialists at MRC work closely with Maine’s mental health community to ensure patients receive the right combination of treatment methods to best facilitate a safe and supportive recovery. Treatment plans are customized for each patient.
On March 1, MRC will open a second location in Portland.
