Addiction Treatment Program Moving to New Portland Location

Mar 16, 2017

PORTLAND, Maine - An opioid addiction treatment program will occupy the space once used by the India Street Public Health Center in Portland.

The Portland Press Herald reports that Grace Street Recovery Services says it's moving its Auburn Street facility to India Street to help a larger number of addicts in the Portland area.

The organization offers medication-assisted treatment and intensive counseling at clinics in Portland, Lewiston and Sanford.

The city's India Street Public Health Center treated HIV-positive patients and closed in December. The facility is still used for sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment, a needle exchange program for drug users and the nonprofit Portland Community Free Clinic.
