Concord's First Addiction Recovery Center Opens Its Doors

May 09, 2016 | Paige Sutherland, NH Public Radio

The first addiction recovery center in New Hampshire's capital city is already helping patients after opening its doors Monday morning.  Hope for New Hampshire Recovery offers peer-to-peer support for people battling  addiction.

The center, located a half mile from the State House in Concord, does not provide treatment but rather recovery coaches to help connect people to addiction services. 

The non-profit has three recovery coaches on staff and expects to serve 20 to 30 people a week.  Soon after Monday's ribbon-cutting ceremony, three people lined up to get help.
