Our COVID-19 Response

Foundation House, Tradecraft12 & COVID-19

The situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic is changing by the day. Foundation House administrative, clinical, and medical staff are dedicated to remaining at the forefront of this pandemic by utilizing our available resources. These resources include our member programs (NATSAP, NAATP), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and our state licensors and governing bodies (DHHS, Gov. Janet Mills).

The health and safety of our residents and staff are our highest priority during this challenging time. This priority includes our continued dedication to providing the highest quality mental health and substance abuse treatment services. Similar to COVID-19, addiction and mental illness do not rest or discriminate.

Admissions – Updated 12/21/21

Foundation House is open and is currently accepting new admissions.

All prospective clients of Foundation House must be vaccinated against COVID-19 or be willing to receive a vaccination upon arrival in Maine. The Foundation House clinical and operations teams will assist new but unvaccinated residents with scheduling and transportation for vaccination appointments. As residents become available for COVID boosters, the clinical team will help residents to receive this additional vaccination.

Visitation/Travel – Updated 12/21/21

Currently, Foundation House is not permitting visitation to our clinical offices and residences. Until further notice, we ask that family members of current residents do not schedule visits to the program. This is a difficult decision, but a decision made with the continued health and safety of both our staff and resident populations in mind as a chief priority.

Updates to the visitation and travel policy will be posted here and circulated directly to all family members via e-mail.

We thank you all for your support and understanding in this matter. We hope that the ongoing complexities of the pandemic allow us to reopen visitation soon.
