The Santa Fe Recovery Center is responding to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic with a number of actions.

We want to reassure everyone that we are still admitting and serving our clients, and want people in need to continue to reach out to us.

Our Response to Coronavirus

Please know we are doing everything we can to keep everyone healthy while continuing to provide services to our clients. In order to keep our staff, clients and their families safe, we have implemented the following protocols.

Intake hours and lobby

We are maintaining regular intake hours, Monday to Friday 9 am to 3 pm for both outpatient and residential levels of care. However, the lobby at our Administration and Outpatient building on Jaguar Drive will be open for clients and individuals for intake only. Before entry to the building, everyone—staff, existing clients and potential clients—is being screened

Please note: If you have flu-like symptoms or suspect you might be infected, DO NOT COME IN TO SFRC. You should call the New Mexico Department of Health Coronavirus Hotline directly to receive instructions.


Individuals seeking admission to SFRC will be screened to assess risk of the Coronavirus. If an individual is identified as being high risk, he/she will be instructed to call the Coronavirus Hotline for more information prior to being considered for admission.

New screening protocols, managed by SFRC’s medical director, are in place to keep everyone safe. A tent has been set up in the parking lot where individuals seeking admission to SFRC will be screened for COVID-19 before entering the building. Once they enter the building they are screened for admission to SFRC programs.

Family members are asked to remain in their cars throughout these screening processes.

Keeping the environment safe

Safety precautions have been implemented in all SFRC facilities. Staff and clients must wash their hands upon entering the building and surfaces in public areas are sanitized at regular intervals.

Residential and Outpatient services

Both the Men’s Residential Treatment and Women and Children’s Residential Treatment programs are still operating with in-person groups and counseling.

  • Beginning March 23, all Outpatient services, including individual counseling and group sessions, will be provided via Telehealth, videoconferencing, or telephone.
  • Residential/Inpatient Groups will still be conducted in person.
  • Clients should call our main number or reach out to their core counselor for more information.
  • Sunday visitation for our Residential clients will be discontinued until further notice.
  • 12-step meetings are suspended until further notice.


We continue to monitor the situation and will make changes to our procedures to remain responsive to the outbreak. Please check our Facebook page and this website for updates.

Thank you for working with us during this challenging time. Your continued support through this difficult situation is greatly appreciated.
