For more than 35 years, Headrest has been providing services to those with substance-use disorders in the Upper Valley area. Services include transitional living, residential detox, outpatient counseling, and a 24-hour crisis hotline.
Located behind the Lebanon, New Hampshire Fire Station at 14 Church Street, Headrest’s vision is to become a leader and an innovator in not only providing addiction and crisis services, but also by responding with services to those who do not have the ability to pay.
Many in the Upper Valley are unable to access substance-abuse counseling services because of limiting conditions. These conditions may be economic, physical/mental, limited access to transportation, or the individual may be incarcerated. Headrest’s volunteers are willing to go to those who cannot come to them.
Through the Headrest outreach program, a substance-abuse counselor will go to the client at his or her location to provide desperately needed services. Their objective is to reduce the effects of socio-economic barriers on an individual’s ability to acquire services by bringing counseling services into our jail systems, homeless shelters, schools, senior centers, and homes.
Headrest also strives to work with adolescents, helping them make informed decisions and healthy choices that reduce the effects of peer-pressure or break generational cycles of addiction.
