Aroostook Recovery Center of Hope Hosts Virtual Recovery Support Group

Chelsea Putnam, ARCH Peer Support Specialist, and Volunteer Coordinator recently started a virtual recovery support group. All community members are welcome.

Aroostook Recovery Center of Hope (ARCH) is now hosting a virtual Recovery Support Group every Friday from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. ARCH 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.

“This support group is open to everyone including people in recovery, people struggling with substance/alcohol/opioid use disorder(s), affected others, allies, and community members,” said Chelsea Putnam, Peer Support Specialist, and Volunteer Coordinator. “I am excited about the participation we’ve had so far. I think this group will help many individuals find their path to recovery.”

Each week a special guest will be invited to the meeting to share their story and provide information. Guests will include peer support specialists, recovery coaches, community program leaders, recovery specialists, people in recovery, volunteers, advocates, etc. “We can learn a lot from each other,” shared Putnam. “This is a great way for people in our community to interact with one another from the comfort of their home, especially important as we head into the winter season and for those who may have transportation challenges.”

Located at 36 North Street in Houlton, ARCH is a service of Aroostook Mental Health Services, Inc. (AMHC) in collaboration with Link for Hope. To receive a link to the Recovery Support Group meeting or for more information about ARCH services please contact Putnam by email at or by phone at 254-2213.
