New Hampshire has the second-highest rate of opioid-related deaths in the nation, and more than double the national average. The number of drug overdose deaths tripled from 2012 to 2016. Since then, New Hampshire has been focused on battling this raging epidemic and attempting to save those struggling with addiction.
In 2018, New Hampshire received nearly $40 million in federal funding to put toward combating drug and alcohol abuse.
Some of these funds were used to:
- increase access to substance abuse treatment
- make medication-assisted treatment (MAT) more accessible
- improve the quality of existing drug and alcohol abuse rehabilitation programs
- increase awareness and prevention measures
- train individuals in crisis intervention techniques
Funding was also used to create scholarship programs and state-assisted payment options that can be used for those who are in need of treatment and financial assistance. Some substance abuse treatment facilities have in-house financing programs that cover the entire cost of treatment for those who meet specific criteria.
The following are some of the most up to date options for low-or free substance abuse treatment centers in New Hampshire.
