The month of June is dedicated to celebrating professional health and wellness. The idea is to emphasize the importance of having happier, healthier employees and for organizations like Dismas Home of New Hampshire in Manchester to continue to raise awareness about the benefits of a healthy community. Many successful organizations focus on the physical and mental well-being of their employees, after all, good employees are their secret sauce. How sound could an organization be if its employees aren’t?
You are not alone!
The past year or so has been extremely tough to say the least. With the combination of isolation, economic instability, and the blurred blended lines between work and home life, it’s no wonder many of us feel stressed and mentally drained. Stress is a well- known risk factor in the development of addiction and in relapse vulnerability. Our state of New Hampshire has consistently had one of the highest rates of overdose deaths in the country. In 2019, we ranked third for the most overdoses per 100,000 people. Fast forward to 2021 with the pandemic barely in our rearview, statistics show opioid overdoses are on the rise, and in the two largest cities there is a significant increase in opioid-related deaths. If you or a loved one is struggling with a substance use disorder this time maybe even more difficult for you. Everyone faces challenges at some point in their lives or the other, we are here to help you make what seems impossible, doable. Know this YOU ARE NOT ALONE, support and treatment are available for you at the Dismas Home of New Hampshire (DHNH) where you can have a second chance at life.
Become a Family Member
Becoming a resident at the Dismas Home of New Hampshire is more than becoming a resident but being part of our family where each person is treated with respect and dignity in a judgment-free, non-discriminatory environment. Our highly trained, friendly, welcoming, and compassionate staff are here to support, encourage and empower each and every resident to take the necessary steps towards recovery and sobriety. Our structured programs promote successful transition and reentry guiding our residents to rebuild and transform their lives while equipping them with knowledge ranging from acknowledgment of their circumstances to zest for life and all that lies in between for success. Our residents have the ability to interact and support other women who have experienced trauma, incarceration, and mental illness, people who share the same story, people who have a mutual understanding of one another’s circumstances. Dismas Home of New Hampshire partners with our residents on their journey of change, their journey toward a happier, healthier, more productive life. We are located ½ mile from downtown Manchester which is close to employment opportunities, community services, and self-help recovery support groups.
