Recovery Support Services

The Recovery Support page provides information on recovery support services for individuals and families across the state.

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

  • Home — having a stable and safe place to live. If you are seeking recovery housing resources, please review the guide on How to Find Recovery Housing, and then visit the NH Certified Recovery House Registry to view some available houses.
  • Health — overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms and making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being.
  • Community — having relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope.  Find Recovery Community Organizations and their information, see interactive map at the bottom of this page.   
  • Purpose — conducting meaningful daily activities and having the independence, income, and resources to participate in society.


Peer Recovery Support Services

Recovery Community Organizations (RCOs) are peer-led and peer run agencies that provide services to support people in their recovery from substance misuse. The RCOs support all pathways to recovery and offer peer recovery coaching, telephone support, and mutual aid groups.  Find your Recovery Community today.  

Recovery Housing

Individuals looking to find a recovery house, or recovery house operators looking to learn how to certify and/or register their recovery house, or someone wishing to file a complaint concerning a recovery house.  

Family Supports

Family Support Services are an integral part of New Hampshire’s recovery system. Family Support Groups provide a safe and confidential environment for parents, caregivers, and adult siblings of loved ones living with a substance use disorder to share experiences, struggles, and successes. Groups are free and lead by trained facilitators.

IMPORTANT: Due to COVID-19, many Family Support Groups are holding on-line meetings so that individuals who have family members and loved ones with a substance use disorder can continue get the help and support they need from the safety and comfort of their own home.
