AskPETRA’s mission is to connect professionals, communities, and adults in Northern NH with the resources needed to understand, prevent, and treat Substance Use Disorder. The website AskPETRA.org, coupled with a call center hosted by dually trained Community Health Worker/Recovery Coaches offer assistance through connection to resources, education, and recovery support.
What can AskPETRA do for you?
AskPETRA’s WARM (Wellness And Recovery Model) program is aimed at reducing barriers and increasing access to treatment and recovery for adults in Northern NH. WARM Community Health Worker/Recovery Coaches (CHW/RCs) provide one-on-one, no-cost, non-clinical, client-driven services to improve outcomes for all North Country residents affected by Substance Use Disorder (SUD). We offer support and understanding to work together to connect you to the resources you need on your path through recovery.
WARM4Women (W4W) was developed to reduce the rate and impact of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) through prevention, education, treatment, and recovery supports for women of child-bearing age who may or may not be pregnant or already have children and have a history of or are at risk for Substance Use Disorder (SUD).
W4W is a team of Community Health Worker/Recovery Coaches (CHW/RC) who provide free, non-judgmental, one-on-one supports to women before, during, and after pregnancy. W4W’s Community Health Worker/Recovery Coaches (CHW/RC) are trusted members of the North Country community and serve as personal guides and mentors for people with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) who are seeking recovery or are at risk of relapse. Supports can include providing connections to treatment, housing, transportation, healthcare, and other essential daily needs and are free and confidential.
North Country Recovers Together (NCRT) seeks to improve recovery outcomes in the North Country by strengthening services and support across the continuum of care through collaboration. NCRT is a community-driven collective initiative open to any sector and/or community member residing in the North Country which includes Northern Grafton and Coos County, New Hampshire.
This initiative is supported by North Country Health Consortium (NCHC).
