Welcome to Headrest

Founded in 1971, Headrest is a non-profit organization with a mission to assist those affected by substance use disorder, experiencing a crisis, or in need of support by providing effective programs and treatments. We also offer support to the family members, friends, neighbors and employers of our clients.


Since 1971, we have helped thousands of those in need – whether experiencing a crisis or substance use disorder issues. We have provided our services through the kindness of our donors and volunteers. Please consider a donation to help Headrest sustain our mission.


Helmed by Executive Director Judi Caprio, Headrest’s team of administrators, counselors, and support staff allow our organization to help tens of thousands in NH and VT each year.
