Keystone Hall, formerly known as the Greater Nashua Council on Alcoholism, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide comprehensive substance use treatment and recovery services to individuals and families in a supportive environment while providing a strategic framework for substance use prevention in New Hampshire.

Keystone Hall is New Hampshire’s premier substance use disorder treatment, prevention, and recovery support services center, offering both inpatient and outpatient services to men, women, families, and adolescents. Located in new state-of-the-art facility in Nashua, NH, Keystone Hall serves those with and without insurance, with a focus on serving those least able to afford treatment on their own.

History

Keystone Hall was founded in 1983 by Paul Lacasse, a New Hampshire native and former marine who dedicated most of his life to social services. Mr. Lacasse, a recovering alcoholic, made it his personal mission to help others reach and maintain sobriety, while reducing the stigma associated with addiction.hopeless1

In 1986, \Keystone Hall’s first program, a 6-bed, 24-hour non-medical crisis detoxification center opened in an old manufacturing building in downtown Nashua. Four years later the agency moved to a larger space, having quickly outgrown its initial home. Keystone began to expand programs to meet needs within the community, and became the first organization in the state to offer both outpatient and residential programs to those most in need of addiction treatment. A transitional living program was added in 1990 to address the ongoing recovery efforts and housing needs of homeless individuals who completed acute, residential treatment but required supports to fully integrate back into the community

In 2003, Keystone Hall affiliated with Harbor Homes and joined what has become the Partnership for Successful Living. Since that time, the agency has quadrupled its budget and significantly increased the number of services provided. Today it is the largest contractor of the New Hampshire Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Services in the state, providing evidence-based treatment and prevention services to over 700 individuals and families each year. Since its inception, Keystone Hall has provided more than 13,000 individuals with the life-saving gift of treatment.

The Difference Is We Knew Better: Interview With a Cocaine Addict

Jeanne Sparks-Carreker

Friday, September 14, 2007 Ever wonder what it is like to live every second of every day with a craving for a substance which has not only destroyed your life, but which has destroyed the lives of those around you, taken away everyone's trust in you, and labeled you with a title that includes you in the same categories as the lowest members of society?

Brenda Manning of Birmingham, Alabama can relate. Her family has disowned her, the business which once held her as a top, valued employee, and which gave her employee of the month plaques three times in two years finally dismissed her. She has been evicted from the apartment she lived in with her children, and just this past November, she lost custody of her twelve year old daughter by a decision within the Family Court System of Jefferson County.

She now lives in a friend's home which has no power or water service because the bills have not been paid by the eight adult residents. Rather, any money accumulated has been used to purchase cocaine. Brenda is a 42 year old Caucasian female, and is noticeably restless as she sits down on the couch in the small, dirty livingroom. Our surroundings seem to lack everything, as if all the valuables and appliances that once sat in this small, old house has been used to barter another hit of cocaine.

JSC: When did you first start using drugs?

BRENDA: I started smoking pot when I was in junior high. I guess I was about twelve or thirteen. I got in with the wrong crowd, you know what I mean.

JSC: Did you finish school?

BRENDA: No, I dropped out when I was sixteen. I really stopped going when I was about fourteen. I just dodged the truancy people. They gave up after a while. Well, when we were kids, anyways.

JSC: What was your home life like back then, Brenda?

BRENDA: My mama worked a lot, I guess. I didn't know my father too good. She had too much to do and couldn't keep up with me, really. It was alright, but I didn't have anyone telling me what to do too much, so I got to do what I wanted.

JSC: When did you decide to try harder drugs?

BRENDA: I guess I was around eighteen, at a party, you know, the whole peer-pressure thing happening. I had been scared of the harder stuff, but then when I tried it, it didn't kill me. I liked it too much, too.

JSC: What drug was it that you tried at the party?

BRENDA: There were people free-basing cocaine. I knew I was hooked the first few seconds after I took a hit. It's owned me every since.

Two males had entered the livingroom from a far bedroom, and as Brenda commented on the cocaine "owning" her, they nodded in understanding, then made their way to another room to my left.

JSC: When did you have children?

BRENDA: I got pregnant with my first kid when I was twenty-two. I was workin' the streets to make money, truck stops and all. She went to live with my mother when I had her cause I didn't think I ...
