The Land of Enchantment is the fifth largest state in the union, meaning there is a lot of geographical diversity. People who don’t live here assume it’s all desert, but that’s not the case. In the north, residents have the advantage of being close to the commerce of Albuquerque and Santa Fe, but they can move far enough out to find themselves surrounded by never-ending grass fields. On the other hand, down in southern New Mexico, people live among the cool mountain pines of cities like Ruidoso, and the national forest provides over a million acres of hiking.
Sadly, despite the beauty of the Rio Grande, the mesas, the Carlsbad Caverns, and White Sands National Monument, New Mexico isn’t without its problems, one of which is opioid addiction. Until recently, New Mexico ranked second in the nation for overdose deaths, and prescription opioid death accounted for half of them. The state is currently ranked eighth and has experienced an eight percent decrease in overall overdose deaths, which indicates an improvement. Opioid use, however, remains a troubling issue.
If opioids have taken control of your life or the life of someone that you love, medication-assisted treatment using methadone has proven effective in helping people establish and maintain sobriety.
