Taking the first step toward treatment can be difficult, so Bernalillo County and other entities across New Mexico are dedicating their time to making it easier.

  • Bernalillo County’s CARE Campus is a good first start. Resources include detox, sober living, and crisis treatment. You can also pick up Naloxone/Narcan at the campus in southeast Albuquerque 24/7.
  • Serenity Mesa is New Mexico’s only youth addiction treatment center. They can treat 14 kids at a time for at least 90 days.
  • There are other providers for adults across the state. Many of them attended Bernalillo County’s Fentanyl summit on Oct. 13. You can find a full list here, on the county’s “Keep NM Alive” campaign website.
