Manchester officials lobby for NH drug court funding


There are a few counties in New Hampshire that have drug treatment courts, but in places like Hillsborough County, that option doesn't exist.

Repeat offenders arrested for drug possession don't have many options. However, some feel drug courts could change that.

Family members of addicts and drug treatment center workers were among those that spoke to the delegation about drug court funding.

Susan Paris, who has a son in recovery, said something must be done.

"I believe that what's happening now is not working," Paris said. "From what I'm hearing about the drug courts from what people are talking about and the statistics from other counties they seem to work."

The delegation votes Tuesday night.
