Hope for NH Recovery Closing All But One Drug Treatment Centers

NHPR File Photo

New Hampshire's largest operator of drug recovery centers is closing all but one of its locations, citing financial struggles.

Hope for New Hampshire Recovery offers support services for people struggling with drug addiction. But the organization announced Tuesday it'll close four centers: in Franklin, Concord, Claremont, and Berlin.

Those centers will close by the end of the month. It'll keep its doors open only in Manchester. That's its original -- and largest -- location.  

The state of New Hampshire stopped sending funds to Hope for NH late last spring. That's after allegations surfaced of mismanaged finances and verbal abuse by high-up employees. An investigation by the state attorney general's office found no evidence of criminal activity, but the organization says state funding never kicked back in.  

The announcement follows news last month that another major addiction treatment provider, Serenity Place in Manchester, would be shutting down. That's also for financial reasons, not for lack of demand.
