Hope for NH Recovery center on track to open in Manchester
MANCHESTER — The city's first addiction recovery center is on track to be operational in the near future.
Developer Dick Anagnost announced during the Special Committee on Alcohol, Drugs and Youth Services meeting Monday that Hope for NH Recovery was expected to receive their occupancy permit, making it operational no later than Friday.
Last fall Anagnost, Andy Crews, president and CEO of AutoFair, and Melissa Crews, former chairman of the board of directors of Hope for NH Recovery, announced plans to purchase the former Hoitt Furniture building at 267 Wilson Street, with the goal of putting multiple services for recovering addicts under one roof, the Union Leader reported.
The first floor of the 37,000-square-foot building will become the new home of Hope for NH Recovery, which will be open 24 hours, seven days a week.
Families in Transition is expected to occupy the second floor, where interior construction work is ongoing.
The fourth floor is also be redesigned for Manchester Mental Health, Anagnost said.
The city committed $300,000 in Community Improvement funds to the project last year.
