Addiction Treatment in New MexicoState treatment data for substance use disorders are derived from two primary sources-an annual one-day census in N-SSATS and annual addiction treatment admissions from the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS). In the 2010 N-SSATS survey, New Mexico showed a total of 12,993 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (11,775 or 90.6%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 1,514 were under the age of 18. Across the years for which TEDS data are available, New Mexico has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only admissions have declined from 58% of all admissions in 1992, to just over 27% percent in 2010. Patients with both alcohol and drug addictions now account for over 44% of admissions.

The National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS) is an annual survey of facilities providing substance abuse treatment. It is conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). N-SSATS is designed to collect data on the location, characteristics, services offered, and number of clients in treatment at alcohol and drug abuse treatment facilities (both public and private) throughout the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and other U.S. jurisdictions.

The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) Support for Community-Based Prevention in New Mexico

Recognizing that local problems require local solutions, Drug Free Communities (DFC) organizations mobilize communities to prevent youth drug use by creating local data-driven strategies to reduce drug use in the community. ONDCP works to foster the growth of new coalitions and support existing coalitions through the DFC grants. In 2011, the following New Mexico coalitions received grants from ONDCP:

Carlsbad Community Anti-Drug/Gang Coalition
Character Kids Coalition
Laguna Prevention Coalition
Partnership for a Healthy Torrance County (PHTC) Substance Abuse Prevention Task Force
Rio Arriba Family Care Network
Shiprock Anti-Meth Task Force
TeamBuilders Counseling Services, Inc.
ZIA Health Task Force
