Residents looking for a New Mexico addiction treatment program should consider looking out of state. Unfortunately, New Mexico has a tragically high drug overdose mortality rate, and hundreds of people lose their lives to addiction every year. Substance abuse treatment, however, can stop addiction in its tracks and help you find a healthy lifestyle before drugs cause tragedy in your life, too.
The Trust for America’s Health, a non-profit addiction research association, lists New Mexico as having the second highest drug overdose rate in the country. To give you some perspective on the scope of the problem, New Mexico’s drug overdose mortality rate is 250% higher than the neighboring state of Texas.
