We’re proud of our supportive, loving community and our homes that make residents feel comfortable from the very beginning. Thanks to the generous support from our communities and the positive recovery path that many of our resisdents have experienced we have been able to grow and provide several recovery homes to men and women in need.
Our First Home
The dream became a reality when the very first home was purchased on October 9th 2018. This home is a great 8 bed 3 bath property close to the public library, the city bus depot, many employment opportunities and some great dining.
One house was never the plan. We knew there was a need and we were determined to fill it and make a difference in the lives of those recovering from addiction. This is our 2nd home for Fresh Start but our first in Brewer.
Due to the overwhelming need, Scott purchased this 7 bedroom, 3 bath home in the fall of 2019. This is the third house that Fresh Start owns, after kicking off our mission just a year before.
At Fresh Start Sober Living - Maine, we provide much more than a temporary living environment. Our facilities cater to all aspects of our residents’ journey to recovery, so when they leave, they are fully prepared for daily life.
House #4 came in February of 2020. This home has 8 bedrooms and like all the other homes is on the bus route and close to services.
House # 5 came in August of 2020. This home has 5 bedrooms with one being a double. 6 recovery residents reside there.
In partnership with the Bangor Area Recovery Network, Holyoke Haven is a 5 bed 3 bath sober living home for women located in Brewer
We acquired a 3 bed 2 bath home in December 2020 . This property serves as our social detox home. Capacity is 5 residents.
Due to the overwhelming need for sober housing in our area, a 6 bedroom 1.5 bath became house number 8 in October of 2021.
In November of 2021 we acquired our 9th property. A 7 bedroom 3 bath home. All rooms are single occupancy.
In February 2022 we added a woman's recovery home to our list of Bangor residences. We are excited to share the journey of recovery for women in need at this beautiful home.
We are in the process of looking for our 12th recovery home.
