New Website to Educate About Addiction Recovery 

A local organization to get people talking about substance abuse recovery, has launched a new website.The Bangor Area Recovering Community Coalition was formed a little more than a year ago. It’s made up of people who are recovering from substance abuse and their supporters.They say they came together because they wanted to shed the mystery surrounding substance abuse, and reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with addiction.The website is their latest tool to help them accomplish that. Chair of BARCC, Bruce Campbell says it will provide information and communication. “Information is where people can come to get information about treatment resources about what’s available in the community and where to go to ask for help. Communication is more of a dialogue.”The group hopes instead of the community seeing all negative stories surrounding addiction, they can see the positive side of recovery.The new website is: http://sites.google.com/site/bangorrecovery/
