Helping Rewrite New Mexico’s Story

Recovery is Possible

In New Mexico, one in 10 adults – and one in six young adults 18-25 – is estimated to have a substance use disorder. Alcohol, specifically, kills New Mexicans at a higher rate than anywhere else in the country.
Seeking treatment can be daunting, and people can face multiple barriers including stigma, health insurance or lack of support. But we believe that recovery services should be accessible to all who need them.

Santa Fe Recovery Center is a nonprofit organization that has been providing compassionate treatment to support people throughout their full journey of recovery from addiction, substance use, and related mental illness since 2005.

In early 2020, at the request of the State of New Mexico Department of Health and the New Mexico Human Services Department, Santa Fe Recovery Center was tapped to fill the void in evidence-based SUD treatment options in McKinley County. Later that year, Santa Fe Recovery Center opened Four Corners Detox Recovery Center (FCDRC) in Gallup, NM, in an effort to help eliminate the gaping health disparities in this rural, underserved community.

*SFRC uses the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria and the Bio-Psychosocial Model for assessments and programmatic development.

* ASAM criteria consider several different dimensions in the client’s life from substance use, mental health conditions, medical conditions, and access to a safe stable living environment. The Bio-Psychosocial Model is a broad view that attributes disease outcome to the intricate, variable interaction of biological factors, psychological factors, and social factors.
