Portland, ME – Catholic Charities’ Substance Abuse & Mental Health Counseling Services program in Portland is the recipient of a five-year, federal contract totaling over $1.6 million in funding to provide community-based outpatient substance abuse and mental health treatment services.
The services will be administered to federal offenders confined in community-based programs and on home confinement in the greater Portland area beginning April 1, 2015.
“This is an opportunity for Catholic Charities Maine to further expand our services to individuals with substance abuse and mental health issues who have the additional stigma of criminal justice involvement,” notes Carolee Lindsay, Director of Co-Occurring and Substance Abuse Services.
“This contract is a tremendous testament to the quality of services our team provides in this field and is in keeping with our mission to serve the most vulnerable populations here in Maine,” adds Stephen Letourneau, CEO.
