In recent years, Manchester, NH, as a community, has seen a spike in substance misuse and substance misuse related deaths. This epidemic has reached across all ages, races, professions, and income levels. With so many in need of help, the continuum of services for substance use disorders has been maxed.
Working together through public and private collaborations, the former Hoitt Furniture building at 293 Wilson Street has been transformed, and developed into a large scale recovery and treatment center to curb the tide of substance misuse in the community.
The Manchester Recovery and Treatment Center will serve as a one-stop-shop for individuals struggling with substance use to find the help and support they need. Area service providers are partnering together to offer services such as:
recovery support, treatment programming, recovery housing, mental health services, and connection with recovery-friendly employers.
Castagna Consulting Group was retained by The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester to provide Program Management Services for the 4,880SF 4th floor design and build out of the Former Hoitt Furniture Building for their 24/7 Mobile Crisis Response Team. The services that are provided at the new center include Supervised Crisis Beds, Peer Support Triage, Counseling & Psychiatric Medication Services, Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment/Referral/Case Management/Linkage.
The 37,000SF historical landmark building is being repurposed as “ground zero” in the fight against drug abuse. The plan is to turn the building into a multi-tiered rehab center for recovery services. Along with the Mobile Crisis Response Team, Hope for New Hampshire Recovery will occupy the first floor, Families In Transition Willows Substance Use Treatment Center will occupy the second floor as well as their Recovery Housing for Single Women on the third floor.
