Sometimes the best medicine is understanding, support, and being able to borrow from the experience of others. So physicians and staff at Eastern Maine Medical Center encourage participation in support groups, where participants say the most important benefit is "knowing I'm not alone." The chance to share perspectives with others going through similar experiences makes the process more manageable.
