McAuley Residence

McAuley Residence provides a comprehensive transitional housing program for women with and without children who are in recovery from drug and alcohol dependency.

The McAuley Residence staff collaborates with Mercy Hospital and community providers to offer a well-rounded approach providing women the skills they need to embrace recovery in all areas of their lives. McAuley Residence is guided by the Sisters of Mercy philosophy of compassionate care for all, with special concern for disadvantaged women and children.

We serve a diverse group of women whose primary concern is addiction. Women come from all over the state of Maine and either apply on their own or are referred through community agencies.

At the McAuley Residence, women commit to actively participate in their individualized program designed to promote positive lasting changes which break the cycle of unhealthy dependences and encourage healthy independence. We have a holistic approach covering all aspects of recovery including: spirituality, parenting, physical and emotional wellness, career/education, financial responsibility and recreation. This is done through professional staff proving comprehensive individual coaching, psycho-educational, and community groups.

The McAuley Residence is located at 68 High Street, Portland, Maine 04101. You can call us at 207-747-4121.
