20 Nov Recovery Services Naloxone Program is in full swing!
Recovery Services is in full support of the NM HSD and DOH naloxone program and we applaud their achievement in expanding Medicaid to cover prescriptions for the medication and the delivery device.
New Mexico has the second highest opioid overdose death rate in the US and we feel that this naloxone initiative is a major step towards combating this problem.
For this reason, Recovery Services is now the first OTP in the State of New Mexico to institute a large-scale organization-wide naloxone program for its patients. Multiple members of our staff have completed the DOH naloxone training program and we have distributed prescriptions for this life saving medication with use instructions to hundreds and hundreds of at-risk New Mexicans.
Our hope is that increased awareness alongside naloxone can work to save lives in our community!
