Don’t Mix Drugs and Alcohol – Learn About Fentanyl

New Mexicans are unknowingly taking drugs laced with fentanyl and overdosing. Fentanyl is 50 to 100 times stronger than heroin or morphine.

About Treatment

Learn about Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT, also known at MOUD – Medications for Opioid Use Disorder) and find treatment options near you.

MAT helps to get through withdrawal and cope with cravings to regain a natural state of mind. Just as important, treatment helps people address life issues they might have that are tied to the opioid substance use, such as feelings of low self-worth, a bad situation at work or home, or spending time with people who use drugs.

Treatment Basics

People can’t just walk away from opioid substance use – they need help. Learn about the types of medication, where to get it and why stigma keeps people from seeking help.

Stop the Stigma

Let’s change the conversation. Anyone can become dependent on drugs and struggle with opioid substance use. No one likes to feel judged or devalued. 2 out of 3 of us know someone struggling right now. We must reduce the stigma to encourage people to ask for help and recovery. Every community is touched by opioid misuse—rural, urban, tribal, large or small.

Our Campaign Resources

The New Mexico Behavioral Health Services Office of Substance Abuse Prevention has developed several campaigns that can be viewed here. Coming soon will be downloadable resources to share in your community that can be customized to include your logo.

A Dose of Reality Native American logo

As part of its overall effort to combat substance abuse, the state’s Native American Outreach Program offers behavioral health services across the continuum of care to New Mexico’s distinct Pueblos, Tribes and Nations while simultaneously addressing challenges and barriers specific to them. This includes working with members of each Pueblo, Tribe or Nation to conduct outreach on opioid overdose prevention, treatment, harm reduction and recovery services.

Diverse group of people


Tailored to meet each person’s needs, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling to treat opioid substance use to both prescription pain relievers and heroin. Opioid substance use is a chronic disease, like heart disease or diabetes that can’t be cured, but it can be managed to help a person with opioid substance use regain a healthy, productive life. People can’t just walk away from opioid substance use – they need help.

La addiccion no es una falla moral


Anyone can become dependent on drugs and struggle with opioid substance use. Opioid Use Disorder is not a moral failing and we need to remember that we can all change the conversation and decrease the stigma around drug use and opioid substance use. We must reduce the stigma to encourage people to ask for help and recovery.
