We are so proud to be part of the Community Health Leadership Board [CHLB].

CLICK HERE to see our new blog.

#HealthyRegion is organized by the Community Health Leadership Board, a partnership of hospitals, health-care providers and the city of Bangor, that seeks to reduce stigma and increase understanding of substance use prevention, treatment and recovery. The organizations participating in the blog, and finding relevant voices to share with you, are St. Joseph Healthcare, Acadia Hospital, Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems, Penobscot Community Health Care, Community Health and Counseling Services, and Penquis.

We want to help reduce stigma around substance use disorders by sharing the stories of real people and providing information about the science and treatment of addiction. Most people can, will and do recover with the right treatment and support. Please contact us if you have ideas of stories to share, and please subscribe to this blog by email. We know it takes a community to support those experiencing addiction.
