BREWER, Maine — A recently sold Brewer building will become the new home for the Bangor Area Recovery Network.

The building at 142 Center St., the former location of Pam’s Discount Furniture, will host an array of recovery support activities for individuals and families affected by addiction, the recovery network’s president, Jean Barker, announced in a press release.

The agency’s current site is in North Brewer.

The new location will be home to self-help meetings and efforts to educate the community about recovery, workshops, seminars and other services, Barker said.

“We are thrilled to have this opportunity, and we have tremendous potential to make a meaningful impact on our community,” Barker said.

Bangor Area Recovery Network is planning a Ride for Recovery motorcycle fundraiser for Sept. 1, as well as an addiction recovery summit.
