Janine mentions her excitement about Pine Tree Recovery Center’s in-network contract with MaineCare.
“There aren’t a lot of detox centers in Maine in general, and specifically not in the Portland area,” she says. “Accepting MaineCare is going to be extremely beneficial for those who need detox services and wouldn’t have had access otherwise.”
Pine Tree Recovery Center’s in-network status with MaineCare removes a significant financial barrier many Maine residents face when seeking treatment for substance use disorders. The 2022 Maine Shared Community Health Needs Assessment Report cites challenges in accessing mental healthcare as a top health priority, noting social risk factors including inadequate insurance coverage as the most significant preventative factor.
“What we’re able to do for the local community is great,” Janine adds. “I’m looking forward to helping as many people as possible.”
