Outpatient Rehab in New Hampshire: Actively Fighting a Growing Public Health Issue
New Hampshire is credited with many firsts. Since it became the ninth state in 1788, inventors and entrepreneurs who call the Granite State home have steadily helped form America as we know it. From the first potato planted to the first female magazine editor, New Hampshire is also the birthplace of Tupperware, credit unions, and top current software companies like Scribe.
And, while not the first, New Hampshire is also an unfortunate nationwide leader in another area – heroin and prescription opiate abuse. In the last ten years, heroin abuse has increased by 90% and opiate addiction by 500%, with incidents of death for each substance greater than 12% in some regions of the state.
Proclaimed in 2014 to be a top public safety issue, the New Hampshire government is arming itself to fight the war on opioids. Major measures include broadening regulations on the life-saving anti-heroin medication Narcan, and expanding substance abuse treatment to every resident who requires it.
