New Hampshire Recovery House Registry

On June 30, 2019, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (NH DHHS) established the NH Recovery House Registry, per HB1775 (paragraph V. and VI.)

On July 29, 2020, this law was repealed and replaced byRSA172-B-2, establishing a new “NH Recovery House Registry”. HB125 states that recovery houses, listed on the NH Recovery House Registry, be certified according to National Association of Recovery Residence (NARR) standards. State agencies and vendors receiving state or federal funds to provide prevention, intervention, treatment, or recovery support services can only refer clients to recovery houses listed on the registry.

Recovery house operators wishing to register, and/or individuals wishing to view the registry, can find that and other important information on the NH Recovery House Registry page.

The state has launched the New Hampshire Recovery Hub, a centralized online resource that connects residents with local Peer Recovery Support Services.

The new resource features:

  • Recovery Hub logoAn interactive map to help people connect to Recovery Community Organizations in their communities and learn about recovery support services throughout the state,
  • An active Meetings & Events calendar that enables users to see current and upcoming meetings and events in real time that can be sorted by location, date, and topic, and
  • Links to state-funded Recovery Community Organizations with information on how people can connect to them.

Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.

Through the Recovery Support Strategic Initiative, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has delineated 4 major dimensions that support a life in recovery:

  • Health - Overcoming or managing one's disease(s) or symptoms and making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being.
  • Home - A stable and safe place to live.
  • Purpose - Meaningful daily activities and the independence, income and resources to participate in society.
  • Community - Relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope.
