GRACE STREET SERVICES, located in Lewiston and Portland, Maine is an addiction/mental health recovery group that suggests a narrative practice that never separates healing from social justice.

We are a company of fellow travelers who have a map or two that may aid others on their recovery journey. We design welcoming space, both in our language and design intent. We believe that recovery from the empty desolation of addiction is crafted by the storyteller and the larger community narrative.

The task is about re-framing. It begins by creating a safe place for people who often have few safe places. The poetry of recovery opens space that with boldness and grace can move to place and belonging. Our language, art, and practice suggest that people are hungry for redemptive stories; for language that elevates rather then diminishes and shames.

Addiction – Mental Health Treatment — Creating Environments of Hope and Dignity.

The work of sobriety is the task of finding meaning, purpose, joy, and satisfaction in life without the searing anesthesia of active addiction. How that happens is as unique to each person as snowflakes on a winter night.

One of the benefits of a storytelling community is the way it can be turned into a narrative that designs welcoming space both in it’s language and it’s design intent. Grace Street provides graceful, dignity oriented sanctuary anchored in the heart of community.

As we launch our site I wanted to take a moment or two to talk about who we are. We think addiction and recovery is a social justice issue. The Global Justice Movement describes it well. “the way in which human rights are manifested in the everyday lives people at every level of society.”

Our recovery group is based on the ideas of equality and solidarity with the folks we serve. We are them. We believe that this work is best done in environments where language elevates and dignity shimmers through our language and space. Addiction is a devasting disease. Addiction has been described as “the realm of diminishing being.” A soul thief that erodes the addicted person, their families and the community. But, addiction does not have the final word.

Recovery is (I think) a re-imagining of a unfinished story. A declaration against the power of alcohol and drugs that a new story can be authored by the person in recovery and by extension, their families and communities. At GS we never separate healing from justice. When one person assumes the new gift of identity



         

Services Offered

Our unique recovery team includes physicians, licensed psychotherapists and alcohol and drug counselors who understand the chronic and progressive nature of addiction and mental health conditions. Our integrated recovery vision begins with the idea that, in both mental health issues and addiction the recovery narrative is created by people as active agents of change in their own lives not simply passive recipients of care. This narrative often gives prominence to the role of diverse pathways in the recovery journey.

Recovery at Grace Street begins with the assumption that each person is the central participant in his or her own story. There are many pathways to healing and our staff recognizes the diversity of each patient and develops a short and long term recovery plan that reflects those values.
