Since October 2018, New Hampshire’s governor and Executive Council have approved contracts for more than $64.5 million in federal money to create the Doorway system of referral and treatment for opioid addiction.

The state was awarded $45.6 million for 2019 and 2020 in State Opioid Response funding from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and almost $12 million in additional funding for year one. Another $6.9 million for the Doorway came from federal sources not linked to the opioid response grant, as the state continues to struggle with one of the highest per-capita rates of opioid addiction and fatal overdoses nationwide.
