We help build resilient communities.

Resilience is an ability to recover quickly from difficulties or easily adjust to change.

Individuals, families, and entire communities suffer from substance misuse, addiction and other behavioral health concerns. The current opioid epidemic has left many of us with sadness, anger and fear. But together, we can fortify our communities. Resilience can be learned.

Makin’ It Happen works with community members, coalitions, healthcare, local government, law enforcement, first responders, schools and businesses to reduce substance misuse and increase education and access to behavioral healthcare.

We proudly serve the Greater Manchester region including the communities of Auburn, Bedford, Candia, Deerfield, Goffstown, Hooksett, Manchester and New Boston.

Makin’ It Happen is collaborating with the Manchester Health Department to address the substance use disorder epidemic in the Greater Manchester Region with many initiatives.  One such initiative is the Substance Use Disorder Continuum of Care.  Please see the Continuum of Care overview tab on this website for updates as we strive to create an action plan for solutions to this growing public health epidemic in our region.

The Substance Use Disorder Continuum of Care Project is a collaborative partnership between Makin’ It Happen and the Manchester Health Department, with funding from the Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Services, NHDHHS and the NH Charitable Foundation.
