Is smoking allowed at drug and alcohol treatment centers in New Hampshire?

As in almost every drug and alcohol addiction treatment center in New Hampshire, smoking is permitted at Avenues Recovery in Dublin and Concord, NH. Although tobacco products are prohibited indoors, at break times, such as in between group therapy sessions, clients may go outside to the designated smoking areas.

When choosing a rehab program for yourself and a loved one, it is important to clarify smoking rules. Although as mentioned, most programs allow it at designated times and in designated locations, there are exceptions. Sometimes, treatment programs are housed in hospitals. Those types of facilities often prohibit smoking.

What should I bring to rehab in New Hampshire?

Packing for a stay at a drug and alcohol treatment center in New Hampshire (and really, at any location) is not any different than packing for any extended trip away from home. Try to stay with essentials. Below is a basic list:

  • Comfortable, seasonally appropriate clothing
  • Alcohol-free toiletries. This includes shampoo, conditioner, soap, body wash, deodorant, packaged safety razors, shaving cream, toothbrush, toothpaste, makeup remover towelettes, makeup, and hair styling products.
  • ID and Insurance Card
  • Books, journals

Is anything not allowed at rehab at Avenues Recovery New Hampshire?

Avenues Recovery in New Hampshire is committed to an environment of respect and inclusivity. Any items or clothing that jeopardizes that feeling of safety is strictly prohibited. At both our Dublin and Concord locations, clients should not bring clothing with gang-related associations, or items depicting profanity and vulgarity, as well as anything promoting drug or alcohol use. Respecting other members of our community includes avoiding short shorts, strapless, or spaghetti strap tops/dresses.

Other guidelines include leaving at home unauthorized electronics, perfumes, and toiletries not clearly marked as alcohol-free, weapons and drug paraphernalia of any kind, and valuables like large sums of cash, expensive jewelry, and designer goods.

If you have questions regarding specific items, our New Hampshire admissions team can help guide you. Don’t hesitate to ask; our staff is here to help!

Can I have visitors at rehab in Avenues at Dublin and Concord?

Drug and alcohol treatment requires concentration and focus, especially during the initial stages of the recovery journey. At Avenues New Hampshire, there is a short period in the beginning of the program set aside for clients to get used to their new surroundings and establish relationships with both staff members and their peers. Once a few days have passed, counselors will use their experience and expertise to set up visitation rules in a way that provides the most benefit for each specific client. Family therapy sessions are also utilized to give families a window into what their loved ones are experiencing in drug and alcohol rehab, and the tools to continue to encourage and support them on their new journey.

Should I go to rehab locally or do I need to travel far away from home?

One of the biggest myths of drug and alcohol rehab is the belief that it is necessary to go far away to pursue effective treatment. The reality is quite the contrary. Many people suffering from addiction are struggling with stability. Being in a totally new place and area can exacerbate that feeling. Many times, it is a much better idea to choose a treatment center close to home. The client will remain protected from outside influences while still maintaining a feeling of familiarity and a sense of being anchored.

Community-based addiction treatment is a big part of the Avenues Recovery philosophy. A native of New Hampshire will feel most comfortable in New Hampshire. It is there that he or she will have the best chance at a lasting positive outcome.

What drugs or drug addictions do rehabs treat?

Avenues Recovery of New Hampshire treats every kind of substance use disorder and process addiction. Addiction to fentanyl, cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and every other kind of misused drug, as well as addictions to sex, pornography, gaming, and all other types of addiction belonging to the umbrella known as process addiction, are addressed and treated at Avenues Recovery.

At Avenues, we believe that no matter the type or extent of substance misuse, people can find their way back to a productive and meaningful life and lifestyle. There is always a path forward and we will do our utmost to help you or your loved one find it.

How long should rehab last?

At Avenues Recovery in New Hampshire, length of stay varies by client. Drug or alcohol rehab is not a one-size-fits-all process, and each client is assessed for their unique needs and situation. However, it is clear from major studies, and our experience in the rehab field, that in general, chances for lasting recovery increases with every additional day in treatment. Extended stays in drug and alcohol treatment are highly recommended in many cases, and Avenues is set up in a way that clients can stay as long as they need.

Drug and Alcohol Abuse in New Hampshire

Statistics and Laws

New Hampshire is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful states in America, with snow-capped mountains, sparkling lakes, and miles of breathtaking coastline. Its natural beauty, however, belies the significant substance use problem it grapples with. Despite being one of the smallest states, New Hampshire ranks only second in the U.S.A in drug deaths per capita.

New Hampshire Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol abuse presents a significant concern in New Hampshire. The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA) ranked New Hampshire as the state with the highest overall alcohol consumption rate (per 1000,000 people over age 14) out of all U.S. states. According to the Prevention Status Reports, excessive drinking causes 341 deaths and the loss of 8,789 potential years of life in New Hampshire each year. In one year, excess alcohol use cost the state of New Hampshire $852.3 million, caused by increased healthcare costs, lost workplace productivity, and alcohol-induced crime. 18.7% of New Hampshire adults and 23.8% of New Hampshire high school students reported binge drinking - a particularly dangerous form of alcohol consumption. 

In a single year, 1,638 people admitted to alcohol rehab facilities in New Hampshire - and that’s a mere fraction of the amount of people actually suffering from alcohol abuse.

New Hampshire Drug Addiction

In addition to its alcohol abuse problem, New Hampshire holds the dubious distinction of possessing the second-highest rate of illegal drug use in the country. There are a variety of factors that have contributed to this reality:

  1. New Hampshire is made up of mainly small, rural towns with insular communities, and the limited economic and educational opportunities often lead to depression and mental health conditions.
  2. New Hampshire has one of the lowest spending rates in the nation on substance abuse relief and recovery programs - causing a severe deficit of necessary New Hampshire drug and alcohol rehabs and resources.
  3. New Hampshire has one of the highest rates of opioid prescriptions written out each year - specifically for high dosage, extended-release opiates - directly leading to opioid dependence and addiction in many New Hampshire residents.
  4. New Hampshire is very close to Massachusetts, the heart of operations for all opioid trafficking organizations serving the greater New England region. 

According to the Center for National Health Statistics, overdose deaths in New Hampshire increased by 26% between March of 2021 and 2022. As of June, there were 230 confirmed overdose deaths in the Granite State, and fentanyl was involved in 125 of them.

Although the uncontrolled prescription drug crisis prompted efforts to crack down on and reduce the large number of medical prescriptions, hard drugs hit the streets of New Hampshire soon after and eliminated any progress that may have been made. Most recently, fentanyl has caused an untold number of (oft-fatal) overdoses, as New Hampshire emergency responders scramble to deal with the crisis that has exploded in their backyard overnight. The dishonorable practice of cutting low-potency drugs with fentanyl - to increase supplies and higher profit margins - has contributed greatly to this alarming spike in overdoses among unsuspecting drug users. Substance use costs the state of New Hampshire $2 billion annually in lost work productivity, healthcare costs, and public safety/criminal justice expenses. 

The most commonly abused drugs in New Hampshire are:

  • Fentanyl
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Marijuana

New Hampshire Overdose Rates

In line with its distressing substance abuse statistics, New Hampshire suffers from exceedingly high overdose rates when compared to the national average. It has the second-highest opioid-related fatal overdose rate per capita in the U.S. - trailing only West Virginia - and the highest fentanyl-related death rate per capita in America. Opioid overdoses kill an average of one or more people every day in the Granite State. That translates into 481 overdose deaths every year-  approximately 30.3 overdose deaths per 100,000 people. Reports show that the New Hampshire county with the highest overdose death rate is Strafford County, with Hillsboro and Merrimack Counties sharing second place. 

Despite these disturbing numbers, not nearly enough people in New Hampshire are receiving the drug and alcohol addiction treatment they so desperately need. The significant lack of state funding and available addiction resources and rehabs has only made this problem worse. 

Avenues’ two drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation programs in Concord and Dublin, New Hampshire work tirelessly each day to combat this epidemic and provide the highest standard of treatment to the clients entrusted in our care.

Drug and Alcohol Laws in New Hampshire

In New Hampshire, drugs and alcohol - also known as “Controlled Dangerous Substances” - are classified into 5 categories, or “Schedules”, based on the strength, addiction liability, and known medical use of each substance. The penalty for any drug/ alcohol violation is dependent on the schedule of the substance involved.

Possession

  • Schedules I, II, III, and IV controlled substances - 
    • First Offense: Up to 7 years of jail time and/ or up to $25,000 in fines
    • Second/ Subsequent Offenses: Up to 15 years in prison and/or up to $50,000 in fines
  • Schedule V
    • First Offense: Up to 3 years of jail time and/or up to $15,000 in fines
    • Second Offense: Up to 7 years of jail time and/or up to $25,000 in fines

Manufacture/ Sale/ Possession with Intent to Distribute

When it comes to sale/possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, New Hampshire categorizes offenses as either a misdemeanor or felony - according to the specific substance and amount. Possible penalties for the manufacture/sale/possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute include:

  • Imprisonment - ranging from 3 years to life imprisonment 
  • Fines - ranging from $1,000 to $500,000
  • Probation - ranging from 1 to 5 years 

Additionally, since its unparalleled spike in prescription drug addiction and overdose cases, New Hampshire has instituted some statewide policies that prevent the over-prescription, and possible diversion and abuse, of prescription drugs. The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program has set forth guidelines for all medical professionals and pharmacists writing and filling prescriptions.

New Hampshire law now requires that any pharmacist dispensing medication submit an official query as well as specific information about every prescription given for a Schedule II, III, or IV substance into a government database. The information must be submitted no more than 24 hours after the release of the prescription (or 7 days after a veterinarian prescription.) This enables the state government to track and account for every prescription medication that is released in the state of New Hampshire.
