Our Vision

We envision a society that supports the physical, mental, and social well-being of all individuals, families and communities, free from negative effects of alcohol and other drugs.

Our Mission

To join individuals, families and communities in reducing alcohol and other drug problems thereby increasing opportunities for citizens to achieve health and independence.

Resiliency and Recovery Oriented Systems of Care

Resiliency and Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (RROSC) are networks of organizations, agencies, and community members that coordinate a wide spectrum of services to prevent, intervene in, and treat substance use problems and disorders. RROSCs support person-centered and self-directed approaches to care that build on the strengths and resilience of individuals, families, and communities to take responsibility for their sustained health, wellness, and recovery from alcohol and drug problems.

People interested in the transformation of the alcohol and other service delivery system in New Hampshire can become familiar with the core principles of RROSC by viewing the presentation to the Governor’s Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention, Intervention and Treatment made by members of the Commission’s Treatment Task Force and staff from the Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Services in August of 2011.

The Governor's Commission on Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Prevention, Intervention and Treatment are pleased to share the Commission's Annual Report to the Governor and Legislature, which was submitted on November 1st. The Report captures areas of success and challenge in the implementation of the Plan for the State on Alcohol and Other Drugs, and details strategies the Commission hopes to engage state leaders and
community stakeholders in over the coming year.
