Update: Opioid Crisis and Addiction Treatment in N.H.

New Hampshire Dept. of Health and Human Services

Since the state established The Doorway, a new system for treating opioid abuse, nine hospitals in different regions now serve as entryways to organizations providing long-term support. Federal grants have helped bolster the system. But some say there are still too many gaps in care and the pandemic has worsened an already fragile situation.

Air date: Monday, Nov. 16, 2020

In addition to visiting this Dooryway site for information on addiction treatment services, anyone in need of help can call 211 at any time of day or night.
