Addiction Recovery Coalition (ARC) is a non-profit formed by a group of concerned New Hampshire citizens out of the desire to empower NH communities with solutions to alcoholism and drug addiction. New Hampshire currently ranks #47 for states that have access to drug treatment programs and #1 for heroin related deaths.
ARC is funded by donations from generous contributors and from Absolute Exteriors to establish and fund recovery residences and sober houses. Learn more by visiting our website!
What are Recovery Residences?
Recovery residences or sober houses are an interim step on the path to sobriety where people recovering from addiction can live in a supervised and structured sober environment, i.e. mandatory curfews, chores and therapeutic meetings.
ARC Recovery Residences provide a safe, affordable, and drug free living for 12 to 18 months after a detoxification and intensive treatment program. Recovery Residences have offered helpful solutions to alcoholism and drug addiction since the early 1900s and it is ARC’s belief that recovery residences must play an ever increasing role if New Hampshire is to rise above the present escalating crisis.
Why was ARC created?
We believe the typical 30 to 90-day intensive drug treatment approach, while helpful, is simply not enough for most suffering with addiction to build the foundations and daily accountability necessary for permanent recovery.
With few recovery beds available and over 60 to 100-day waiting periods for rehabilitation centers, we must pursue recovery solutions that enhance long term success of present clinical rehabilitation programs.
Multiple studies have shown that extending support and recovery stay length by even several months decreases the percentages of relapse dramatically. We can no longer sit idly by and tolerate a system of revolving treatment and relapse.
