We provide a safe place where people with chronic pain can support one another, develop friendships, share ideas and thoughts, obtain information about their condition from professionals and each other, and learn coping skills in a nonjudgmental and caring atmosphere.

We meet on the first and third Thursdays of each month in the Hospitality Room of The Pines in Ocean Park, Maine.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
