AmeriCorp Recovery Program to Help in New Hampshire Opiate War

Harbor Homes Recovery Corp is a new AmeriCorp program, put in place recently to wage war against opiate addiction in the Granite State. Recovery Corp workers will be disbursed to nonprofit recovery programs throughout the state and will connect with clients to provide a wide range of services that they previously went largely without. New Hampshire has been in the throes of an escalating opiate war. This program will no doubt be well received and has the potential to do a lot of good.
