Substance Abuse Resources

Our services

We screen all patients for substance abuse, and we encourage our patients to discuss substance abuse concerns with their providers. You can also schedule appointments with one of our social workers, who can help you assess and access the best resources for your situation.

If you are concerned about the possibility of an opiate overdose for yourself or someone else, we can provide Narcan and train you to administer it in an emergency.

Call (603) 447-8900 and press 1 to schedule an appointment.

 

Local treatment options

Counseling is a good place to start for substance abuse treatment. A counselor can help you directly, and can also help you consider other treatment options, such as a residential program or medication-assisted treatment.

We refer patients to these local outpatient counselors:

We also refer patients to these local medication-assisted and/or inpatient treatment options:

Health insurance and substance abuse

  • Health insurance companies are required to cover substance abuse treatment. This includes both private insurance and Medicaid.
  • How much you will pay for your care will vary by insurance plan. Treatment covered by Medicaid is free.
  • Most plans will allow you to schedule substance misuse and mental health appointments without a referral from your primary care provider.
  • Most insurers list a number specifically for mental health and substance abuse services on the back of your insurance card. This is a good place to start when you are looking for resources because your insurance company can direct you to providers they’ll cover, and help you understand how much of the cost you will be responsible for based on your plan.
