Comprehensive, compassionate, and respectful care for patients experiencing substance use disorder.

Our Services

Greater Portland Health screens patients for substance use disorder during their first visit and at annual visits to help recognize any unmet need or opportunities for further screening, counseling, and treatment.


Greater Pathways is open to all patients of Greater Portland Health. In addition to your primary care team, experts dedicated to helping people recover from substance use disorder are available to you. 

Where to Start?

Talk to your primary care provider or the substance use coordinator at Greater Portland Health for a referral to Greater Pathways. You will then meet with one of our licensed clinical social workers to help you determine the best pathway for you. If you determine that you would like to explore further or be referred into treatment, your clinical social worker will work with you and members of the team to create a unique plan that meets your needs. 

Peer Support

Are you seeking recovery or in recovery from alcohol or substance use? Are you trying to overcome mental health challenges or other life challenges? If so, you may access peer support services from Greater Portland Health. Our Certified Intentional Peer Support Specialists (CIPSS) are people in recovery who are familiar with a variety of recovery resources in the Greater Portland area. You may access our CIPSS and our peer support services through one-on-one individual support, or in peer support groups. You may meet at one of our locations or out in the community.
