Roads to Recovery plans ‘Fall into Recovery’ picnic

CARIBOU, Maine — Roads to Recovery, a service of Aroostook Mental Health Services Inc., will host a picnic on Saturday, Sept. 12, from 12 noon to 3 p.m.  

R2R is located at One Water Street in Caribou and is a place where individuals can come and receive support for their recovery journey, connecting people to resources and also serve as a venue for various recovery meetings.

  “We are looking forward to this event,” said Erik Lamoreu, Substance Use Disorder Peer Recovery Center Manager. “The pandemic has changed how we support our recovery community but our team has worked hard to keep people connected and engaged. We will continue to support individuals through in-person and telehealth meetings including SMART (Self Management and Recovery Training), Parents in Recovery, Relationships and Addiction, Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Probation and Recovery.”

  The event is known as “Fall into Recovery,” and coincides with National Recovery Month, held each September. 

Community members are welcome and asked to wear masks and practice social distancing. 

“We will have some individually wrapped snacks to enjoy as well as an opportunity to share more about the services at R2R,” said Lamoreau.  “Narcan training will be provided and kits will be handed out. We will also have fun decorating masks that attendees can take home with them.”

  For more information on the activities or resources offered at Roads to Recovery please contact them at 493-1278.
