Case Manager

Rosie is a mother of 4 and has been in recovery from IV opioid use since September 23rd, 2008. During her time in active use, Rosie was incarcerated and dealt with CPS involvement multiple times. Her journey in recovery started when she was offered a choice: treatment instead of incarceration. After successfully graduating from inpatient rehab, Rosie went into sober living. Since then, she has spent her time in recovery advocating for women by focusing on harm reduction and trauma-informed low-barrier access to gender-responsive and family-focused treatment. Rosie has been on Buprenorphine for 13 years and is a Certified Intentional Peer Support Specialist (CIPSS), CCAR Certified Recovery Coach, a Re-Entry Coach with Maine Prisoner Re-Entry Network, and most recently, she graduated from Yale University’s LET’s LEAD Academy. She is a certified facilitator for Hearing Voices Network, Women for Sobriety, WRAP, and A Woman’s Way. By promoting multiple pathways to recovery, it is her hope to change the stigma facing those still struggling with SUD in Maine. She has obtained her MHRT/C-p and is working toward her CADC.
