    A group from Hope for New Hampshire participated in the Tilton Walk for Addiction.

    The former director of a drug addiction recovery center is continuing to offer peer support services in Claremont as community partners work on a long-term plan.

    Hope for New Hampshire Recovery closed the Claremont center earlier this month due to financial difficulties. The center's former director, Wayne Miller, told the Valley News that he is offering peer support meetings and individual coaching appointments at the former center on Tuesday and Friday afternoons.

    Miller says community partners hope to develop a plan for delivering the services formerly provided by Hope for New Hampshire, which also closed its office in Concord. The Executive Council recently approved $600,000 to keep the offices in Franklin, Berlin and Manchester open.
