About The Partnership

The Partnership is a public-private collaboration between the NH Department of Health and Human Services’ Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Services (BDAS), the NH Governor’s Commission on Alcohol & Other Drugs, the NH Charitable Foundation, the NH Center for Excellence/JSI.

The Partnership envisions a New Hampshire where individuals have the information and skills they need to make and support positive, healthy decisions around the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Together we can help individuals, families, and communities of NH to get informed and get help when they need it.

Our Vision

A New Hampshire in which citizens are fully aware of the problems and solutions of substance misuse.

Our Mission

The mission of The Partnership @drugfreeNH is to create and promote consistent statewide messages about the problems and solutions of substance misuse in New Hampshire through engagement of partners, members and champions.

Our Strengths

  • We emphasize and recognize the value of relationships and shared resources.
  • We plan and implement consistent statewide messaging strategies by mapping available resources and integrating them into our plans.
  • We rely on mutually beneficial relationships to achieve sustainability.

Our Core Values

We believe that well-crafted prevention messaging has a positive impact on our communities and state.

We believe that if we engage every sector of our state and community, we can more effectively and efficiently reach our audience and be successful in providing consistent and complementary messaging.

We believe that there is opportunity in every new relationship built, no matter how big or small, with collaboration and leveraging efforts, we can provide an attainable and sustainable success plan.
