The Exchange http://nhpr.org en Substance Abuse And Addiction: N.H. Discusses http://nhpr.org/post/substance-abuse-and-addiction-nh-discusses <p>It’s no secret that substance abuse is a huge and growing problem across the United States. And although New Hampshire is often ranked healthier than other states, substance abuse is one area in which we fare worse. For example, the Granite State is well above average in terms of binge drinking and prescription drug abuse, and below average in prevention and treatment. And now, a new initiative this year brought together community members in conversations across the state to discuss these problems, and the biggest barriers to addressing them.
