About New Futures, Inc.
New Futures envisions a state and local communities where public policies support prevention, treatments and recovery-oriented efforts to reduce alcohol and other drug problems. In particular, the organization believes that the analysis of the economic and societal cost of alcohol and drug misuse in New Hampshire will be of critical importance to policy makers and advocates in 2015 as the state seeks as part of the State Fiscal Year 2016/2017 budget process, to wisely invest its limited resources to promote economic growth and the public health and wellbeing of its citizens.
