The addiction crisis in the Granite State is an ongoing battle, and Farnum Center is trying to be on the front lines.
“We can’t take everyone so there is no way we can keep them all happy,” said Cheryl Wilkie, Vice President of the center.
Wilkie said the Farnum Center is nearly always full.
People battling addiction, like Vanessa High, come in looking to change their lives.
“I ended up here because I was an IV drug user. I’ve had a long history of using. When I was 22 I went to my first treatment center,” said High.
High told NH1 News she knew she hit rock bottom, when she realized she was barely seeing her nine year old daughter. While waiting for an open bed, she was buying suboxone off the street while attempting to self-detox.
“I called anywhere in NH that would be willing to accept me. By the grace of god they took me in early. Farnum called me back,” said High.
Now she's on a new path, preparing for a life of recovery. High’s just one of several success stories emerging from these doors.
The Farnum Center is a cosponsor of NH1 News' hour-long special Killer High, airing Tuesday night at 9 p.m. on WBIN-TV and NH1.com.
