Josh Kane Joins AFC Board of Directors

Acadia Family Center has welcomed Josh Kane of Bar Harbor to the AFC Board, announced Sam Hamill, Chair. “Josh will be a fine addition to our group, and we look forward to working with him to offer information about drug and alcohol abuse and addiction, and resources for recovery, to people on Mount Desert Island and the surrounding communities,” said Mr. Hamill.



Our treatment philosophy is recovery oriented, strengths based, and rooted in resilience. We utilize traditional cognitive behavioral therapies as well as alternative and expressive art therapies.


In our view the best treatment is prevention; the active, assertive process of creating conditions that promote well-being. In holding to that view, we prioritized prevention activities in local schools.
