Absolutely love this place they saved my life and gave my daughter her father back the staff was amazing and the place was beautiful food was delicious.......
Pine Tree and Plymouth House saved my sons life and we are eternally grateful. He struggled with opiod addiction throughout high school and was in and out of programs. Nothing worked. Eventually he made the decision to go to Plymouth House/Pine Tree and his life was transformed. If parents are reading this and feeling hopeless, I can tell you that it IS possible to get your loved one back. Addiction does not have to define them. There was a period where I thought he would be dead any day, or that he would suffer for life and be estranged from his family. But I can tell you that a year and half sober now, he is a joy, kind and mature, and we love to spend time together. Thank you Pine Tree
Pine Tree Recovery Center is absolutely amazing. The entire staff, counselors, facilitators and volunteers were all very professional, friendly, respectful, kind and caring people. Pine Tree is very laid back with a relaxing environment. Everyone there was very supportive and helpful every step of the way during the 12 week course that I graduated from. With everyone there being in recovery themselves, my experience was much more enjoyable. This made it reassuring that the staff were able to relate to the struggles of being an addict. This is not a program that has staff and facilitators who have never struggled with addiction and just have a degree in substance abuse counseling and can’t relate to someone who is an alcoholic or addict. I would highly recommend Pine Tree Recovery Center to anyone who is looking for help and wants to seriously get sober. Pine Tree’s IOP exceeded my expectations and provided me with the tools, contacts, and resources I needed to get sober and stay sober.
Very compassionate staff, considering some of the visitors of the facility. Excellent food, relaxed environment, and the medical team were very good as well. Most of the staff have had personal experiences with the same issues the patients deal with on a daily basis, which made the treatment much more personal and compassionate!! Keep up the great work everybody!!
Response from the owner: Thank you for the review, and we truly value your response. It is our vision to be a beacon of hope for all those struggling with addiction across the United States. Our carefully designed service continuum meets clients where they are—and empowers them with the tools for sustained recovery.
This is the best place I’ve ever seen for recovery. They go out of their way to make sure you’re in a good place. I would recommend them to anyone struggling with mental or dependence problems.
For me personally an incredible unparalleled experience in sobriety. Professional, engaging staff, each with their own experience that any addict/alcoholic can relate to.Ultra focused on the aftercare plan. Alumni are encouraged to stay in tune. Caring and sincere clinicians who don't let you just slide through. I will carry the knowledge gained throughout my life.Sincerely Jeremiah, Addict
The staff and the facility was amazing. My stay there was amazing and made some great connections there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! We work with most major insurance providers. We offer free no-obligation insurance benefit checks for those who are interested in our program. Our admissions team will speak with your insurer and get a detailed verification of your insurance benefits and share those details with you. Unfortunately Medicaid and Medicare do not cover our facility. We are in-network with Maine Community Health Options.

Pine Tree Recovery Center is located in Portland, Maine. We are about one hour and forty five minutes north of Boston. Clients from Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts & Connecticut regularly attend our program. We offer a complimentary car service for clients up to four hours away from our facility.

Often traveling out of your home town is the best option for treatment. The temptation to leave early and relapse is much lower when you are away from the people and places that are associated with your substance abuse. Pine Tree Recovery Center offers a complimentary car service for individuals in the surrounding areas who are interested in coming to the program.

Admissions is quick and easy. Once you call our admissions team one of our dedicated counselors will perform a pre-assessment over the phone . This takes about 10 minutes and just makes sure Pine Tree Recovery Center is the best fit for you or your loved ones individual needs. After the assessment we will verify insurance benefits and arrange a time for your intake (this can be as quick as 30 minutes from the initial call). If you need a ride to the facility we will dispatch one of our drivers and you will begin your recovery at our facility. It is that easy.

Once admitted to our program, clients are encouraged to complete a Release of Information (ROI) form for friends, family, employers, etc. Due to HIPPA laws we are not allowed to confirm or deny any patient’s attendance at our facility without a signed release of information. These laws are in place to protect the privacy of those who are seeking help. If your loved one did not complete an ROI, what we can do is take down your name and information as well as any message you have. If the person you are needing to contact is at our facility we will make sure they receive the message as soon as possible and ask to set-up a ROI for you.

We offer programs lengths individualized for each client. Generally detox is anywhere from 3-7 days. These are estimates and are adjusted to meet the needs of the individual client.

During detox access to laptops and cell phones are restricted. However, special arrangements can be made for individuals who need to conduct business or important personal matters. For clients who are self employed, we do offer an executive program that allows for cellphone and laptop access in certain cases during business hours.

We accept adults ages 18 or over.

While we strongly discourage leaving before treatment completion, we are not a lockdown facility. Clients are in our program voluntary and may leave when they want.

Clients who need to take off work to attend treatment may be eligible for the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA ensures that you will not be terminated while taking a leave of absences from work to attend treatment. Our admissions and case management staff can help with setting up any FMLA paperwork. For clients who are self employed, we do offer an executive program that allows for cellphone and laptop access in certain cases during business hours.

We do offer private bedrooms, however these rooms are on a first come first serve basis.

Yes. Tobacco products are allowed in our facility. However we do not allow electronic cigarettes (vapes).

Absolutely. We understand that addiction affects the entire family system and encourage families to participate in their loved one’s treatment. To help families recover we also offer intervention services, case management, and family workshops.

Yes. We believe in complete and total confidentiality and privacy for all of our clients. We take extra measures to make sure we go above and beyond HIPAA and health privacy standards. If you are concerned about specific privacy requirements please feel free to reach out and we can answer your questions.

The Pine Tree Recovery Center detoxification cost can be covered by most health insurance companies. If you are uninsured or underinsured, Pine Tree Recovery Center will create a customized payment plan based on your individual needs and length of stay.

If you’re wondering if you or your loved one needs treatment chances are someone needs help.  Before admission into our program we offer a pre-assessment to determine if clients meet criteria for admissions to treatment. To complete a complementary pre-assessment please call our admissions team at (888) 601-0135

During detox, medication is used to ease withdrawal from the drugs or alcohol that clients have been using. The types of medication used are determined by our medical team based on the needs of the client. Common medications used for opiate detox are suboxone and clonidine. Alcohol and benzodiazepines are commonly detoxed using librium, gabapentin and baclofen. If you have questions about detox medication please contact our admissions team.
