It was significant news when Hope for New Hampshire announced in February it was closing four of its five recovery centers around the state. Hope was one of the biggest operators of these facilities, which are widely recognized as a critical support for people in recovery.
Since then, after a scramble to secure more public funds and a big effort in some communities to keep services running, just one of those original four locations remains closed for good. That’s in Concord.
An upstart recovery organization had announced plans to replace Hope’s center there. But that group, Midpoint Recovery, now says they’re shelving the plan. They simply couldn’t raise the money they need.
