New Hampshire council OKs new teen drug treatment facility
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire officials have approved an inpatient drug treatment facility for teenagers in Manchester.
New Hampshire Public Radio reports the Executive Council voted to approve a four-year contract Wednesday with Granite Pathways. The 36-bed facility on the grounds of the Sununu Youth Services Center will be open to children between the ages of 12 and 18.
Gov. Chris Sununu commended the council and legislators for helping to make the project a reality.
The Sununu Center’s population has shrunk as the center reforms its juvenile justice program. Officials began renovating the building earlier this year.
The Granite Pathways facility is scheduled to open in November.
