About Together Place
Four Decades of Caring
Together Place opened in 1981. As of 2020, MMHC has undergone its largest transformation. With a focus on providing peer support for individuals in substance use and mental health recovery and the completion of significant upgrades to the facility, the organization adopted a new name that perfectly aligns with its mission and programming: Together Place Peer Run Recovery Center.
Together Place Peer Run Recovery Center has a bold vision for the future.
Board of Directors
Together Place is governed by two boards — the Maine Mental Health Connections (MMHC) board as the fiscal agent, and the Together Place Peer Run Recovery Center Board guides the center’s daily operations.

“I joined to work on my recovery, started volunteering, then joined the board which is 100% people in recovery. I enjoy helping guide Together Place Peer Run Recovery Center as we add new plans.”

Certified Intentional Peer Support Specialists (CIPSS)
CIPSS are specially trained individuals who support others in the recovery process. They are distinguished from traditional recovery coaches as the State of Maine requires they receive more extensive training and continuing education in both mental health and substance use. CIPSS must be in long-term recovery from a mental health or substance use issue themselves. Together Place employs the most CIPSS in Northern and Eastern Maine.
