The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) will partner with Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe County and Presbyterian Espanola Hospital in Rio Arriba County to expand the identification of individuals with drug overdoses at these two hospitals and ensure that a peer support worker is providing information on treatment resources to those who survive an overdose. The overall goal is to ensure that patients who have overdosed have access to treatment, thus ending the cycle of overdose deaths.
