Waterville Peer Recovery Center will host an open house from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday, April 4, at 32 Ticonic St., in Waterville.

Those interested in mental health or substance use recovery are welcome to join NAMI Maine’s new community resource for individuals with mental health and/or substance use challenges. Remarks and recognition will begin at 5 p.m. Visitors can tour the facility and meet staff and members.

The center is a community where participants can feel accepted, uplifted and empowered — experiencing hope and the reality of recovery. Creating a drop-in social community using an evidence-based model that supports recovery through relationships and community, the Peer Recovery Center offers classes, groups, activities and linkages to community resources. The environment eases isolation, and allows participants to feel understood without the need to talk of diagnoses and symptoms, according to a news release from the center.
