No one should have to do it alone. Granite Pathways is a community of hope, welcoming anyone impacted by mental illness and substance abuse.

Safe Harbor Recovery Center Re-opens
Safe Harbor Recovery Center, Granite Pathways’ peer-led program for those seeking recovery, is open with health precautions in place.


Granite Pathways is pleased to welcome Dustin Ward, CRSW, to Safe Harbor Recovery Center as its new Director.

Dustin is not a new face in the recovery community. He started his career with Granite Pathways in early 2016 as a Safe Harbor volunteer, later to be employed by Granite Pathways where he demonstrated his passion and skill as a practitioner and leader. As a person in long-term recovery, Dustin appreciates the power of peer support and is excited to join Safe Harbor.

He is committed to continue the strong legacy of his predecessor to serve the Seacoast community, and recognizes that he has big shoes to fill. However, he welcomes the challenge and looks forward to working with members, staff and constituents to fulfill the mission of the Center and Granite Pathways. In particular, Dustin will look for opportunities to serve populations of people with unique needs. A veteran himself, Dustin’s first project will be to develop targeted services to meet the needs of service members.

Please join us in welcoming Dustin into this exciting new role! He can be reached at or by phone at 603-570-9445.

Our History

Founded in 2009, Granite Pathways began as a grass-roots initiative that introduced the “clubhouse” model in New Hampshire, an evidence-based, self-help community, aimed at eliminating isolation and providing hope, dignity, and recovery options for adults with mental illness.


The Granite Pathways of today is a multi-faceted, statewide organization that provides an array of services for those struggling with mental illness or substance use disorders.

Our Programs

Our Peer Supported Recovery model is a holistic approach to long-term recovery. People who have traveled the pathway to recovery and who understand the job and challenges of the journey lead the process. Working alongside someone with a shared experience means that support is credible and sustaining. Research proves that peer-led support is the most effective approach to substance use recovery. Embedded within our peer recovery centers is workforce readiness opportunities. We believe that work completes treatment.

Our Family Support Services ensure that family members do not feel isolated and have the supports they need to make it through the day to day challenges of having a loved one struggling with addiction. Through group sessions, families have the opportunity to share their stories, learn how to effectively cope, and manage expectations.

Our Clubhouses located in Manchester and Portsmouth offer a welcoming, supportive environment to those struggling with mental illness.

All of our services and supports are focused on helping individuals achieve stability and pursue education or employment—resulting in long term self-sufficiency.
