The NH Center for Excellence (the Center) is a state-wide technical assistance resource for practitioners, organizations, systems of care and communities to promote and improve best practices to prevent, treat and support recovery from substance misuse. Technical assistance comes in various forms and services, from strategic planning consultation and data analysis to learning communities and best practice implementation support provided by the staff at the Community Health Institute/JSI.

The Center’s mission is to provide technical assistance, disseminate data and information, and promote knowledge transfer to support the effectiveness of communities, practitioners, policymakers, and other stakeholders working to reduce alcohol and other drug misuse and related consequences in New Hampshire. Meet the Center Team.

The Center is an initiative of the NH Department of Health and Human Services’ Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Services (BDAS) and is funded in part by SAMHSA, the NH Governor’s Commission on Alcohol & Other Drug Prevention, Intervention and Treatment, and the NH Charitable Foundation. The Center contracts with the NH Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors Association/NH Training Institute for Addictive Disorders (NHADACA/NHTIAD) to provide materials and training opportunities on topics related to alcohol, tobacco and other drug services.
