"'The Harbor' is a place for people in recovery operated and organized BY people in recovery."
"Shelter from the Storm"
After two and a half months of renovations, The Harbor Peer & Wellness Center opened its doors in late November 2018 in Boothbay Harbor. Many thanks to the local contractors and peers who put in time to make this happen. Located at 35 School Street, the new Center offers a Wellness Group which meets every Tuesday, and Alternatives to Suicide, Reiki, creative writing, resume building, and basic life skills groups will also be offered, among others.
Program Coordinator Adam Sterrs and colleague Emily Carroll are excited to have this opportunity in their own hometown and they feel that it's a necessary step in promoting education and wellness with regard to addiction and recovery.
There will be an Open House at the Wellness Center on December 19, 2018 from 4 to 7 p.m.
We are a collaborative Center
that is rooted in the Intentional Peer Recovery Model. This will be one of the most amazing places in our community.
We offer a variety of convenient and safe spaces to help peers with issues from addiction and recovery to mental wellness to life skills and self-expression, and more. We believe that no one should suffer alone and that when we triumph, we should share that, too.
People at Amistad facilites and community centers make meaningful, lasting friendships. Like all of the establishments under the Amistad umbrella, The Harbor has a welcoming community feel.
A Hometown Feel
The building that The Harbor is housed in was constructed with the able assistance of peers and professionals from the Boothbay area, and our senior staff are longtime residents. You'll feel at home knowing that we represent our close-by towns from the soil we stand on to the tip-top of the roof.
