Are you or someone you know in need of services that address substance misuse? For many people, addiction is a daily reality. The Doorway is here to help—whether its help for yourself or a loved one—we can connect you to support, services and care that is right for you.
The Doorway at DHMC is part of a statewide initiative to address the growing opioid crisis. DHMC serves as a hub for Western New Hampshire. Walking through the Doorway at DHMC could be the first and most important step that someone takes today.
Anyone in need of help can always call 211
If you or someone you know is experiencing an addiction-related crisis, call 211 now.
211 NH is the connection for New Hampshire residents to the most up-to-date resources they need from specially trained Information and Referral Specialists. 211 NH is available 24 hours, 365 days a year. Multilingual assistance and TDD access is also available. For those outside of New Hampshire, call 1-866-444-4211.
The Doorway is a program that is changing how New Hampshire helps their residents with an opioid use disorder (OUD) or other substance use disorders (SUD). There are nine Doorway locations, including DHMC, providing single points of entry for people seeking help for substance use, whether they need treatment, support, or resources for prevention and awareness. The regional Doorways ensure that help is always less than an hour away. In addition, 24/7 access to services is also available by dialing 211.
The Doorway is designed to make screening, evaluation, and care coordination services more centralized, available, and accessible. The Doorway is a modified "hub and spoke'" model where the Doorways will serve as the "hubs" and work with local providers ("spokes") to implement regional approaches to the opioid crisis.
Doorway at DHMC services include:
- Care planning
- Continuous recovery monitoring
- Diagnostic evaluation
- Facilitated referrals
- Naloxone distribution
- Screening and crisis stabilization: in person and via telephone
New Hampshire's Doorway program receives funding from the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration—State Opioid Response (SOR) grant and is under the leadership of New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu and the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services.
