New Hampshire's Only Youth Inpatient Treatment Center Approved
Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu released the following statement after the provider contract for New Hampshire's only Youth Inpatient Treatment Center was approved unanimously at this morning's Governor and Council meeting.
"The opioid crisis is indisputably the single greatest public health crisis our state has ever seen. As Governor, I made a commitment to the people of New Hampshire that I would put the health and well-being of New Hampshire's children first. That is why last year in my budget I included the requisite funds to build an inpatient youth treatment center, the only one of its kind in New Hampshire, to ensure that New Hampshire's children can receive the specialized care they need. I commend the council, members of the legislature, and many others who recognized the necessity of this vital project for our state's children and helped make it a reality."
Note: The Youth Inpatient Treatment Center is set to open in early November.
