Substance Misuse

Resources and help regarding services available in New Hampshire for substance misuse prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery.

The Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Services (BDAS) serves as the DHHS program that oversees the development, maintenance, and quality of substance misuse services across the continuum of care. In part, BDAS accomplishes this by providing contract funding and oversight of various programs. In addition, we make technical assistance and training available to providers regardless of whether or not they are contracted with us. 

BDAS also works to effect and implement policy in order to ensure the needs of the citizens are being met.
