M.C. Hothem D.O.,P.A.

Proud of my Sobriety

i had been on suboxone for about 3-4 years when i started to get horrible migraines. I begin to visit different hospitals to see if there was anything wrong with me. They said everything was fine. I also saw a neurosurgeon and a chiropractor and nothing helped. Then one day someone off hand said could it be your suboxone? I slowly begin not taking it and within a week the migraines were gone. That created a new problem. I needed to be on something because I didn't want to create a problem with my soberity. Someone mentioned maybe seeing Dr. Hothem. I have been here for 7 visits and he has been amazing. He has really helped me be proud of my accomplishments and I am grateful to be seeing him.


I have been very please with the help Dr. Hothem has provided me over the years and I would not recommend any other Dr. The things i have achieved over the years of coming to see him has changed my life and career. I wish him and his staff nothing but the best.

Recommending this great Dr in Portland Maine

I appreciate all he has done for me and have had other opportunities at other health professionals but remain the course with Dr. Hothem. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr. Hothem!

Greatest doctor and program!!!

I have been going to this program since pretty much the start of it. This program has kept me from going back to my old ways of doing things and has changed my life in many diffrent ways, and saved me from not violating my terms.of probation which has changed my life in many ways. I completed it successfully and couldnt have done this without Dr. Hothem and his many diffent ways at looking at addiction and he is a doctor that actually cares about his patients and there health and there everyday living. You will learn many new things and great methods too. I habe suggested this program to more then 10 people and all still go and have been doing great this is my 5th year and always look forward to seeing dr.hothem its a great place--mh

Through his unique methods, and joyfull practice, Dr. Hothem has taught me to handle those pressures, and enjoy the freedom of an addiction free lifestyle. He has honestly changed my life.

New Beginings

my time with Dr. Hothem has been a life changing experience for me personally. It has given me a new lease on life.

Great Place For Recovery

Dr. Hothem and his office staff are wonderful. Dr. Hothem has been a huge help in my recovery. I have been to 4 different places for treatment and i have found this to be by far the best. I had not been able to successfully achieve recovery until i found Dr. Hothem's office. He showed me new ways of approaching recovery that have been very helpful to me. They are very welcoming and have not ever rushed my recovery process and i have never just felt like one in a hundred patients like i have at some other places. You get the personal attention you need and deserve to work on your recovery. I am very thankful to Dr. Hothem for all he has done to help me.

Im doing good in my recovery

dr hothem has made me realize the importants to being sucessful in recovery I appreciate him taking time from his schedule to help me move foward in a positive path

He truly cares

I have been a patient of Dr. Hothem for almost 5 years now and I cannot say enough the wonders he has done for me. When I started I was heavily using opiates and never thought I would be able to maintain sobriety for any long period of time. At first, I thought the rituals were a little weird, but I was open as I was willing to try about anything to get my life back. As time went on I began truly looking forward to my visits with Dr. Hothem. He has a very different approach than any other addiction facility I have been to. He does not just test my urine and write a script for the month. He actually takes his time and cares about how I am doing. Not just with my sobriety, but in all areas of my life. I am so thankful for the support he has given me and really do not think I would be clean this long had it not been for him.

Thank you Dr. Hothem!

I battled the disease and have finally feel free with his help. I would recommend this to anyone looking to break free.

becoming the woman i knew i had always been

I started working with Dr. Hothem about a year and a half ago. When I came into his office I was badly broken. I addicted to herion and had lost my way. He showed me that there is so much more to life that it just takes some work that with certain regimens things would start looking up again and he was absolutley right. I can now prodly sat ive been sober for 17 months I have held a job and manage to keep all of my finances in order in this time and the best blessing besides soberity is that ive become the mom my children missed so badly. so I can not thank him enough for showing me that today will be better than yesterday.

A new journey to happiness

Dr Hotham is very caring, has saved my life, and shown me the correct path to happiness.

thuoughts and feelings from someone who was ready to give up.

i started this journey almost three years ago. I was in a real bad place in my life where i thought i was out of options. I needed help that i didnt think was accessible to me. through this program ive come from rock bottom to back in a place in my life i didint think id ever get to again. so to anyone who is willing to work with the program and willing to want to become clean and sober this is the place to start that process. the staff here are careing and understanding i couldnt say enough good about the program. if you want your life back for good this is the place to start that journey.

A Second Chance a Life

I've been a patient of Dr. Hothem since 2/23/15, today will mark my fifty third visit. In those 53 visits I have not had a single relapse. Before coming to see Dr. Hothem my life was completely different. As a Heroin addict I faced death every day and my future was grim to say the least. Multiple arrests, no job, and a broken relationship with my family had left me with little hope and noting to look forward to. Then I became a patient of Dr. Hothem. With his help I now own my own business, have reconnected with family, have been sober for almost 5 years without a single relapse, and have a promising bright future. I owe my life to Dr. Hothem and cant stress enough how incredible his treatment program is. If you are reading this testimonial and my story sounds a lot like yours, please take the time to reach out to Dr. Hothem. If I can do it, you can too! My only regret is not being able to leave a 6th star.

Regaining a positive life

Dr. Hothem's addiction program has had an amazing impact on my life and has really helped me get back to being my best self. I can finally look back at my past and be proud of how far I've come. I'm happy to finally be on the right track and moving forward to bigger and better things. Thank you Dr. H, for helping me get my life back. You are truly an amazing man. :)
