Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued a summary report on several incidents involving youths receiving treatment for a substance use disorder (SUD) at the Youth Treatment Center (YTC) operated by Granite Pathways in Manchester.

The report is based on interviews with YTC staff and residents, record reviews, and other collateral information. The report is designed to provide transparency about events in November and December 2019 that led to five youths in treatment at the center requiring medical intervention.

In the aftermath of these events, DHHS directed Granite Pathways to suspend further admissions to the YTC. The Department took additional steps in the days following the events, including terminating the State’s contract with Granite Pathways to operate the YTC, ensuring safe and appropriate discharging of remaining residents to other settings, and overseeing the wind down of Granite Pathways’ operations at the YTC. As of December 7, there were no more youths receiving treatment at the YTC.
