Motivational Services Inc.

All programs utilize the psycho social rehabilitation model to assist residents in achieving their identified goals.

We provide homey environments that allow residents to participate in intensive social programs and rehabilitative services within their chosen community. In addition to our eight (soon to be nine)! congregate living homes in Augusta, we have two residential programs in Waterville, which provide the same services to those who wish to live in the Waterville area.
