Newest NH addiction recovery facility opens with Franklin Farnum Center


A facility in Franklin officially opened Tuesday morning to New Hampshire residents in need of substance abuse treatment.

"There’s nothing like nature to soothe your soul, get your heart in the right place, quiet your mind. We have that here," Farnum Center senior vice president Dr. Cheryl Wilkie said. "Our real goal is to take people in the day they need it, not tell them there’s a waiting list. Let me walk you to your room."

The renovation began last fall and cost nearly $1,000,000.

Between its Manchester and Franklin locations, the Farnum Center can now accommodate 99 people for treatment and 99 more for medical detox every month.
