End the Drug Crisis and Tackle Mental Health Challenges

The drug crisis and mental health challenges have touched nearly every Granite State family. Drugs have taken loved ones and impacted our families and our workforce. Smart and compassionate leadership can help us end the drug crisis and tackle mental health challenges that have affected so many by helping those who suffer from addiction to reclaim their lives.

STOP THE INFLUX OF DRUGS

Whether it’s across the border or through the mail, illegal drugs make their way into New Hampshire and poison our communities. We need to finish securing the southern border to prevent the influx of drugs and get tough on countries like China that passively allow the shipment of drugs like fentanyl and meth.

WORK WITH NEW HAMPSHIRE LAW ENFORCEMENT & MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELORS

Matt will work to fund additional support for our local law enforcement as well as local mental health counselors who can work together to tackle the drug and addiction crisis at the local level in New Hampshire. These resources should also be focused in our schools to allow for early interventions and prevent our students from getting hooked on drugs.

FULLY SUPPORT NEW HAMPSHIRE’S COMPASSIONATE APPROACH

Governor Sununu and New Hampshire leaders have created a personalized approach to tackling the addiction challenges in our state through the ‘Hub and Spoke’ system. We need to fully fund these efforts to ensure that those who seek help have access to inpatient treatment and care immediately, to help them tackle their addiction and provide opportunity for them to reclaim their lives.
