Governor Sununu Statement on Executive Council Authorizing 23 Additional SUD Respite Beds

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Sununu issued the following statement after the Executive Council voted to authorize 23 additional SUD (substance use disorder) respite beds:

"A critical component to continuing New Hampshire's success in combating the opioid crisis are respite care services," said Governor Chris Sununu. "The additional respite beds, which will be available on a 24/7 basis, will assist The Doorway to provide short-term SUD care while those receiving treatment are assessed to receive long-term recovery services. These beds will also help to increase in-patient capacity in areas outside of Manchester to assist The Doorway with its mission of treating individuals in their community. I applaud the Executive Council for approving these important contracts."
