About Us

The Augusta Recovery Reentry Center is a project currently spearheaded exclusively by the Maine Reentry Network. MERN began in 2017 when its founder, Bruce Noddin was volunteering for Catholic Charities facilitating Bible study sessions for people in the Androscoggin County Jail. He asked if any services were being provided to people post-release, and the response was “Nothing at the moment…why don’t you start something?” Mr. Noddin eagerly picked up the thrown gauntlet and created what has become the premiere organization in the state to guarantee that no incarcerated Mainer has to experience the hurdles of community reintegration alone. As a man in long-term recovery himself, Mr. Noddin and the MERN board eagerly accepted the challenge of creating a center in Augusta that expanded the organization’s focus to include not just those returning from physical prisons, but also the very real psychological and physiological prisons of addiction and substance abuse disorder.
