- Rates of substance abuse in New Hampshire remain above national averages. Each year, more than 100,000 people in the state’s small population are dependent upon or abusing alcohol and/or drugs.
- Only between 8 and 14% of those in need actually seek and receive treatment services.
- Among people in treatment in New Hampshire during 2015, the most common primary substance of abuse by far was heroin—for almost half of all treatment admissions.
- Following heroin, the next most common substance of abuse was alcohol, followed by other opiates, including prescription painkillers.
- In just the 2 years between 2013 and 2015, the number of heroin treatment admissions in New Hampshire increased dramatically—by more than 30%.
In the midst of substance abuse, sobriety may be undesired or seem unattainable, but people with substance use disorders can and do recover. Though you or a loved one may resist the idea of treatment, substance abuse is an issue of significant concern. It’s common to think you or your loved one won’t face serious consequences, but the reality is that the overwhelming majority of overdoses and drug deaths are accidental. The first and most important step towards recovery is seeking help.
There are around 50 different treatment facilities in New Hampshire, each with a unique approach and philosophy. Some are inpatient rehabs, where clients are residents of the treatment facility. This environment offers round-the-clock care, a safe recovery environment that’s separate from possible temptations at home, and intensive involvement in treatment activities. The time and level of involvement in treatment is the most important indicator of positive recovery outcomes.
There are also outpatient rehabs in New Hampshire, which allow clients to have more freedom and flexibility with their schedules. Though inpatient rehab has its benefits, it’s not feasible for everyone, in terms of their responsibilities at home or their financial situation. In many cases, outpatient is an important step following an inpatient stay. During the transition back into a life of work and family responsibilities, it’s helpful to still have regular therapy, counseling, and recovery support.
Beyond choosing a treatment setting, you’ll have to consider which treatment services will suit the needs of you or your loved one. Treatment needs to be individualized because each person has unique underlying factors that contribute to their substance abuse.
In New Hampshire, you’ll find facilities that provide both substance abuse and mental health services, which are known as dual diagnosis rehabs. There are facilities that specialize in trauma-related counseling, some with special groups for survivors of abuse or domestic violence, and some with programs for veterans or current members of the military. You’ll also find gender- and age-specific programs.
There are so many different things to consider before choosing and committing to a rehab. Whether it’s your first time looking into treatment options of you’ve done this before, you don’t have to go at it alone. Our representatives are well-versed in the treatment field, and can answer any questions you may have about specific programs, services, or payment options. Call us anytime: 1-866-317-7050.
