A new non-profit organization wants to open an addiction recovery center in Concord–in space that was only recently occupied by a different drug abuse recovery group.
Hope for New Hampshire Recovery announced last month that it would be closing its Concord office, along with three other locations around the state.
Since then, the state and others have come forward with funding for all the other centers, at least in the short-term, but not for the Concord center. Its Concord location closed its doors March 2.
Hope for New Hampshire offers peer-to-peer counseling and other services considered critical for those in long-term addiction recovery.
Now an organization called Midpoint Recovery Center is trying to raise about $100,000 to open in Hope's former Concord location.
The founder says he knows it will be a challenge. They just formed last year, and this will be their first venture.
