Mission:  to dramatically reduce substance abuse among Maine youth to help them live productive, healthy and rewarding lives.

Provides substance abuse screening & assessments, and residential, individual, group and family treatment services for youth. School-based programs in many schools.

Has 'Natural Helpers' programs in high schools around the state. At the beginning of the school year, students in each participating school nominate peers to be Natural Helpers. They are asked to name someone whom they would feel comfortable going to with a personal problem or issue of concern. These are peers who have a natural ability to listen, empathize, and be supportive. Those nominated to be Natural Helpers attend a two-day Fall Retreat, where they learn critical listening skills and how to identify and deal with Red Flag issues.
