Recovery Support

Building Sobriety & Stability for Veterans & Families 

Thousands of New Hampshire residents are impacted by the widespread issue of substance use disorder (SUD), whether directly or indirectly through family members, friends or loved ones. The government estimates that approximately 130,000 Granite State residents are addicted to drugs and alcohol, which severely impacts their health, well-being and daily life.

Our goal is to reduce the occurrence of substance use disorder among two specific high-risk populations – veterans and single mothers facing addiction and homelessness – through the use of transitional housing and a wide range of support services. We help them achieve and maintain their sobriety, while generating improvements in their housing, employment and other life situations, which are key to their overall well-being and return to independence.

Why This Matters

  • Substance use disorder (SUD) impacts approximately 130,000 New Hampshire residents, or 10% of the state’s population. Yet only an estimated 4-6% of those individuals seek or receive the appropriate treatment they need. If not treated, substance abuse can be deadly, as NH has one of the nation’s highest rate of opioid-related overdose fatalities in the country.

  • Veterans are known to be at higher risk for substance use compared with the general population due to higher incidences of PTSD and mental health challenges. An estimated 1-in-15 veterans suffer from alcohol addiction or other forms of substance misuse.

  • Both homeless women and single mothers are also at a higher risk of alcohol or drug use, especially those who have experienced trauma or abuse. 38% of homeless individuals are alcohol dependent and single mothers are more likely to develop substance use issues compared with other women.

Our Response

Emergency shelter, transitional housing and support services for pregnant women, as well as single mothers with children, many of whom experience homelessness due to alcohol or drug use.

Substance-free housing and connections to various community resources that help veterans break free from addiction, regain their independence and build stable futures.

Flexible mental health counseling – in-person or online – for individuals seeking to better cope with the impacts of substance use.

Our Programs

 New Generation

New Generation is a shelter and transitional housing facility for pregnant women, mothers, and children experiencing homelessness, often due to substance use, domestic violence and mental health challenges. Through our wide variety of support programs, we help mothers get back on their feet and build self-sufficient futures with stable housing and jobs.

Liberty House

Liberty House provides substance-free housing and connections to various community resources for veterans who are either homeless or face insecure housing. Through our unique 4-Step program, we walk alongside each resident and support their self-directed plan for independence, which includes recovery, mental and physical wellness and gaining meaningful employment.

Mental Health Counseling Services

We provide flexible mental health counseling – both in-person or teletherapy – to help individuals gain the skills necessary to better cope with difficult situations, including those working to overcome substance use challenges through therapy, or families dealing with the fallout and impact of their loved one’s challenges.

In Their Voices

  • “I had some experience with men’s sober living in the past but the feeling of being welcomed here was incredible and it still is, every day. We talk about the word gratitude and it’s so much more than having the opportunity to have these wonderful gifts, it’s about the gratitude that we feel towards staff and each other. It’s about the camaraderie that we share…”

    – Doug, resident of Liberty House
  • “I was in a tough spot and I needed to make things better for me and my son. I was the type of person who was afraid to ask for help but (New Generation) made me feel comfortable and safe to be here and I’ve gotten really far in the last two months. (They) give all of us women a bunch of hope, pushing us as parents and human beings to be able to make a better future for our kids because that’s what it really is all about.”

    - Abi, former New Generation resident
  • “When there was really no hope, when there was a lot of despair and pain, just know that a place like this, at least for me, will take the despair and pain away. As I spent days and months here, I started to see the hope.”

    – Doug, resident of Liberty House
