2.)  How do I enroll in one of your programs?

Our agency wants to make the intake process as comfortable as possible. It all begins with a phone call, 603-560-8160. One of our staff members will speak to you about your substance abuse history and complete a brief assessment of your needs. The next step is to set up a time to do a telephone screen and get a bit more information. Clinical staff will review your information, and based on your own personal needs, you would be advised as to what appropriate level of care meets your needs.

Prescription medication is allowed to be taken as long as you have physician’s orders.
