If you’ve made the decision to turn your life around, to turn away from substance abuse and/or addiction, we congratulate you on your courage. But it will take more than willpower to continue on the path to sobriety. Duke City Recovery Toolbox in Albuquerque gives you the support and tools you need to end your addiction.
Understanding the Social Context of Drug Addiction
Individuals must make the choice for themselves to seek medication-assisted treatment. But drug addiction is not an individual problem. Drug addiction is often the result of an attempt to cope with other social realities, including:
- Lack of employment and/or meaningful work
- Multi-generational drug use
The depressed economy of New Mexico and relative proximity to drug production and trafficking centers creates a “perfect storm” for substance abuse, addiction and overdoses in our own backyard.
Multi-Faceted Approach to Medication Assisted Treatment
Just as the cause of drug addiction has many factors, effectively addressing drug addiction requires treatment for body, mind and spirit. Duke City Recovery Toolbox develops a comprehensive addiction recovery program for each participant based on their needs, which may include:
- Medication-assisted treatment (also called pharmacology therapy/opioid replacement therapy)
- Education and relapse prevention
- Individual counseling
- Family therapy
- Medical services
- Detox support
- Spiritual care
All treatment is delivered in an outpatient setting, so participants receive treatment in the context of their normal lives.
How to Start Drug Addiction Treatment
Duke City Recovery Toolbox strives to remove barriers to drug addiction treatment. To get started, you need to complete an intake appointment, and intakes are scheduled at 5:00 am Monday through Thursday. Eligible participants will receive medication the same day, and we offer evening dosing hours to better fit your life.
