Purposes, philosophy and mission
A. Southeastern NH Services is a private, not-for-profit (IRS 501 (c) 3) agency serving addicted people, their families, and their associates without regard to race, religion, color, age, creed, sex, sexual orientation, handicap, or national origin. Its mission is to provide the highest possible quality addiction services to persons who are in need of these services.
B. The Agency recognizes that many addicted persons who are most in need of addiction treatment services are very limited in their financial means. As a charitable organization, the Agency will subsidize the cost of non-reimbursed services through contributions so that services will be available to all in need regardless of ability to pay. Therefore, the Agency will seek funding from a variety of resources both public and private.
C. The Agency is committed to an ongoing program of prevention and education activities. To promote the availability of services, to champion practices which help prevent chemical dependency, to overcome myths and misconceptions commonly held about addicted persons who are detrimental to the welfare and independence of addicted persons, and to provide advocacy on their behalf.
D. The Agency is dedicated to continuing its historic practice of responding to the emerging needs of the addicted population. It is committed to pro-actively encouraging all forms of free access and to maintaining the highest quality and availability of services. Accordingly, the Agency will continue to advocate for and work cooperatively toward mutual goals with appropriate existing private, voluntary, and tax-supported programs, as well as the many self-help groups.
E. The Agency believes that it is essential to preserve its integrity, independence, and identity as an organization dedicated to providing a variety of treatment services for addicted people. Our good name and the good will of the agency’s contributors who make our programs possible, mandate our very best efforts to preserve accountability, provide prudent, effective treatment, management of contributed resources, and to carry out fundraising in accordance with accepted ethical standards.
