New Hampshire Innovation Now


Sometimes, we get so caught up in bad news that we forget there is reason to be hopeful. New Hampshire, like the rest of the nation, is struggling with a crisis of substance use disorder, addiction and overdose. It brings pain to millions of Americans and their loved ones.

Yet at the same time, we are also seeing how innovative programs are bringing new hope to many people across the Granite State. The Innovation Now initiative recognizes innovators and leaders across the multiple sectors needed at the table to address addiction-- prevention, treatment, recovery, child welfare, criminal justice and health professionals – leaders who are creating solutions and driving change.
