Breaking Addiction

A Free Scholarship for Addiction Treatment in our Substance Abuse IOP

Now accepting applications through December 7th.
We created the Breaking Addiction program last year to honor the series, Breaking Bad, and the attention it has brought to Albuquerque. Although the show has ended, the spotlight it shed on substance abuse and addiction in the state of New Mexico has not.

To continue fostering treatment, recovery, and a better quality of life, we are again giving away a scholarship for addiction treatment in our 12-week Intensive Outpatient Program for Substance Abuse. In addition to providing this scholarship opportunity, we are also partnering with to collect stories about addiction and its struggles.

If you or a loved one are looking for help with substance abuse, apply by submitting your story of addiction on  Deadline is December 7th.

About the IOP for Substance Abuse

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a 12-week program for individuals and their families struggling with chemical dependence issues. The IOP structure encourages clients to actively practice implementing the recovery skills they are learning in their lives while having a supportive environment in which they and their families can process these changes.

The IOP serves as a continuum of care following a residential treatment program or as a higher level of care for those who have struggled with their recoveries at a lower level of care. Our clinic offers a myriad of additional support services for the individual and family based on their needs. These services include individual therapies, couples counseling, family therapy, medication evaluation and monitoring, outpatient opiate and alcohol detox, and aftercare services.
