ABOUT ARCNH

ARCNH offers a peer-to peer-based approach of providing resources for recovery from substance use disorder (SUD).

OUR STORY


Addiction Recovery Coalition of New Hampshire is a Community Recovery Center (ARCNH CRC) in Milford, NH. ARCNH was founded in 2015 by a group of concerned citizens, most of whom struggled with SUD and overcame their illness through the power of a spiritual awakening. Knowing this was the key to their recovery, they founded a recovery program based on faith and responsibility. This program was implemented in 2016 at ARCNH’s first initiative, a men’s recovery residence in Hancock, NH. Through this initiative, ARCNH recognized the opportunity to provide recovery support on a larger community scale, and thus the ARCNH recovery residence transformed into the ARCNH CRC in Milford, NH. ARCNH CRC provides access to all pathways to recovery including both secular and faith based pathways.

MISSION

ARCNH is a Community Recovery Center that treats Substance Use Disorder (SUD) at a community level by providing a central location for access to local support systems. Our personal experiences with SUD drive our passion and urgency in addressing this epidemic using a peer-to-peer based approach. With so many pathways to recovery available, we guide individuals in finding the pathway that feels most aligned with their values and needs.

VISION

ARCNH CRC understands the challenges of beginning and maintaining a journey through recovery from SUD. We strive to lessen that challenge by making information and treatment more accessible to the community. By establishing connections with resources within the community, providing in-house coaching and life-skills services, and offering a location for various recovery events and groups to host their programs, we envision an empowered community that heals from SUD together.

THE CENTER

The ARCNH Community Recovery Center is located in Milford, NH. Our services are available to New Hampshire residents within the Souhegan Valley Region. Towns in Souhegan Valley are: Milford, Wilton, Amherst, Hollis, Brookline, Mont Vernon, Greenville, New Ipswich, Temple, Lyndeborough, Mason.

ARCNH is an extremely dependable and active community partner. I really can’t say enough good things about the impact they have had on the community in the last several months. I expect ARCNH to continue to grow, add programs, help more people, and become a permanent fixture and presence in this state. I admire the work they've done in such a short period of time and am very excited to see what's next!

ARCNH’s passion for community outreach and giving back is exceptional to say the least. The resources they provide highlight not just their coalition, but plenty of options in the surrounding area. We have also participated and enjoyed the training that has been hosted at their facility. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with them in order to provide the resources and support that our community needs.
