Part 1: If you’ve been listening to or reading the news over the past year then you know that substance use & addictions have increased significantly during Covid. In this episode Leslie Clark, Executive Director for the Portland Recovery Community Center (PRCC), discusses PRCC’s mission of providing support education and resources for people recovering from and affected by addiction, and to spread the message of hope throughout the state of Maine.
PRCC on Forest Avenue in Portland provides a safe haven for people in recovery and offers a home for meetings and activities devoted to recovery from substance use disorder and other addictions. PRCC is operated by staff and volunteers who are passionate about recovery, and every activity is designed to help people with their daily recovery efforts.
In the last Living Life with Lynda episode, #119, we spoke with Crossroads on this same topic and I love that they work together with PRCC to help people recovery in our communities. Do you or someone you know need help? I encourage you to reach out and ask for help! There are so many resources and programs available. You just need to take that first step.
Part 2: Weekly Words of Wisdom – Lynda talks about hiking a new trail she discovered on All Trails. She shares how the trees she saw on that hike reminded her of an article she read by Dr. Karen Clickner, titled Lessons From Living Things in the monthly Wisdom magazine.
