Recovery Services of New Mexico
Recovery Services of New Mexico is a substance use treatment center that offers methadone treatment to individuals incarcerated at the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center. Recovery Services of New Mexico is dedicated to assisting those facing addiction related issues, and working to make a significant difference in the lives of individuals by increasing their chances of recovery from opioid addiction. Individuals in jails are not usually offered opioid addiction treatment. Furthermore, the addiction to opioids that these people experience largely fuels the drug trade, physical abuse, crime, and transmission of infectious diseases within the prison system. More often than not, opioid dependent individuals return to drug usage and criminal activities after release from prison or jail. Treatment for opioid addiction among those incarcerated helps the person and their family, the overburdened prison system, and society. The organization's Medication Assisted Treatment program is a proven strategy to reducing recidivism due to substance use.
