MANCHESTER, NH – The doors are open at the HOPE for NH Recovery Center, 267 Wilson St. The move from Central Street marks the next phase of recovery and support for the organization, which provides coaching and resources for those in need of addiction treatment, as well as those actively engaged in recovery.

Although the center is up and running as of Nov. 1, all meetings for the week have been cancelled so that furniture can be moved in, and office spaces can be set up. On Tuesday workman remained on site, continuing the renovation process that has transformed the four-story former Hoitt’s Furniture building at the corner of Valley and Wilson into what will be a multi-faceted 37,000-square-foot comprehensive community recovery center, the first of its kind in New Hampshire.

HOPE for NH Recovery has taken over the spacious first floor and will be open 24/7 – one of the most important changes to the center, in making the move. Other occupants will include Families in Transition, which will provide intensive outpatient services and housing for up to 12 women, likely sometime in the spring of 2017.

Grounded in peer-based recovery services, the mission of HOPE for NH is to help individuals and families manage the chronic disease of addiction, while working with community partners to eliminate barriers to treatment and recovery that keep people from getting the kind of meaningful help and long-term support they need.

Volunteers are welcome and always needed. To learn more, contact HOPE for NH at (603) 935-7524, or find them on Facebook.
