$25,000 Grant funds Partnership at Seacoast Addiction Treatment Center
Published Thursday, July 6, 2017

Southeastern NH Alcohol & Drug Abuse Services in Dover received a joint $25,000 grant from the NH Charitable Foundation (NHCF) in Concord and the Endowment for Health (EFH) to help the organization expand its services in the Seacoast, Strafford County and across the state.

The grant will be used to hire Carolyn Benthien, a consultant from Benthien & Associates in Goffstown, to guide SENHS through the development of a three- to five-year strategic plan aimed at finding ways to expand the organization’s ability to assist residents struggling with substance misuse.

“We couldn’t be happier to have the EFH and NHCF as partners in this process with us,” says Sharon Drake, CEO of SENHS. “These are tough times in the substance use disorder field, with record numbers of individuals overdosing and/or dying. This funding is a clear indication of their commitment to our organization and to helping us fulfill our mission to help as many people as possible.” 

Tym Rourke, NHCF’s director of substance use disorders grantmaking and strategic initiatives, says the grant will help SENHS improve the sustainability of its programs.

“With the healthcare debate ongoing nationally and at a state level, organizations like SENHS need to remain nimble,” he says. “The Foundation is pleased to partner with the Endowment to bring resources to the kind of strategic planning needed to help the program continue to provide this critical service.”
