    The NHPHP is contracted by the Office of Professional Licensure and Certification (OPLC) to work with licensees of the NH Board Licensing for Alcohol and Other Drug Use Professionals, as well as twelve other NH Health Professional Boards.  I believe we can be a valuable addition to the wellness toolbox for your NHADACA members.  We are a free and confidential resource that assists with identification, intervention, referral and monitoring of health care professionals who may be affected by substance use disorders, disruptive behavior, mental health conditions, burnout, professionalism concerns or other issues impacting  work, health or well-being.  NHPHP offers both a voluntary track and a Board mandated track.  In addition, there are education, stress and burnout resources on our website: www.nhphp.org .

    We are seeing the huge impact COVID-19 is having on the helping profession, and want to reach out to all those working with clients and their families affected by alcohol and other drugs that can carry our message of support and recovery.  I have attached our PDF which I hope you will find suitable to post on your website as well as our hyperlink: www.nhphp.org,  or perhaps include in email blasts to your members.  Please contact me if you have any questions about our services and how we can work together to sustain our shared interests in the health and safety of New Hampshire Alcohol and Other Drug Use Professionals.  I am also available to provide informational presentations about our organization and wellness resources at  your membership meetings and conferences.

    NH Citizens Health Initiative and the University of Vermont are seeking the input of New Hampshire health care providers and community stakeholders to guide substance use treatment efforts in Northern New England. The needs assessment begins with a brief online screening survey.  If you are eligible to participate, you will receive an e-mail link to a brief online survey (10-15 minutes) about substance use treatment efforts in your community or your clinical practice. You can choose to receive an online gift card in appreciation of your time. The information collected in this survey will help guide the efforts to expand opioid treatment and inform how communities address substance use. Providers and community stakeholders can volunteer to participate in the assessment by following this link: go.uvm.edu/nh

    The New Hampshire Baseline Needs Assessment aims to

    • Identify our communities’ most important and urgent needs and improve systems of care available for those facing substance use issues;
    • Identify ways to support the delivery of evidence-based substance use treatment and trainings for physicians, nurses, and other staff in rural counties;
    • Be responsive to increases in substance use and drug-related fatalities resulting from the current COVID-19 pandemic.

    The New Hampshire Citizens Health Initiative (NH CHI), part of the University of New Hampshire’s Institute for Health Policy and Practice, is a key partner of the University of Vermont Center on Rural Addiction (UVM CORA) which aims to support the front-line providers of substance use treatment by providing surveillance, education and outreach, and technical assistance to rural communities in NH. You can learn more about the New Hampshire Citizens Health Initiative at www.citizenshealthinitiative.org and the University of Vermont Center on Rural Addiction at https://uvmcora.org.
