The Greater Manchester Regional Public Health Network includes the communities of Auburn, Bedford, Candia, Deerfield, Goffstown, Hooksett, Manchester and New Boston.
The vision of the Greater Manchester Region is to have a comprehensive, integrated, accessible, and responsive Substance Use Disorder Continuum of Care that promotes the health of our communities.
This vision was created during the blueprint project with the help of many community stakeholders. To read about this work please follow this link: BLUEPRINT PROJECT
The Continuum of Care includes environmental strategies (health promotion), primary care, behavioral health, prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery.
In 2016 an Assets and Gaps mapping of our regions substance use disorder services was completed. Using the assets we have developed a regional directory of resources across the continuum that can be found by visiting www.communitycompassgmr.org
The identified gaps were used to develop Recommendations for Action and in collaboration with many regional stakeholders, through the Substance Misuse Collaborative, we are currently meeting in work groups to develop action plans for priorities.
