State Opioid Response Grant

The current COVID-19 public health crisis is stressful for all. You are not alone. Everyone is feeling some level of anxiety and discomfort right now. It is normal to feel this way. If you or a loved one have struggled with anxiety, other mental health concerns or substance use disorder, this may be an even more difficult time for you.
Mental Health and Substance Use supports and treatment are available to you even during the state of emergency. You can call 2-1-1 to be directed to help.

If you are already connected to a treatment or recovery support provider, stay in touch with them. All Doorways are open and available to connect you to substance use disorder resources. To find your local Doorway, go to, or call 211.

The State Opioid Response Grant is an award from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to help DHHS and substance use disorder providers combat the opioid crisis in New Hampshire. This two-year grant program addresses unmet treatment needs, opioid overdose deaths and barriers to medication assisted treatment (MAT). SAMHSA’s funding award is for $45.8 million over a two-year period.

SOR funding led to the establishment of The Doorways on January 1, 2019. The 9 Doorway locations throughout the State create clear points of entry for any resident with an opioid use disorder (OUD) with help less than an hour away. Funding is expanding access to MAT, peer recovery supports services, and evidence-based prevention programs, among other activities. For more information about the State’s SOR program, please see the SOR grant proposal DHHS submitted to SAMHSA in August 2018, as well as a recent supplemental award proposal.

Summary of Doorway Activity
