Council approves $600K for Hope for New Hampshire Recovery

March 8, 2018

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s Executive Council has approved $600,000 to keep open some offices of a state organization that helps people with drug and alcohol addiction.

Hope for New Hampshire Recovery said last month that the outreach and support in the group’s main office in Manchester has been strong, but that hasn’t been duplicated in other communities. The board of directors voted to close satellite centers in Franklin, Concord, Claremont, and Berlin.

On Wednesday, the council approved a state contract to keep the organization’s offices open in Franklin, Berlin and Manchester. Concord and Claremont will still close.
