  • While the staff are friendly here, the outpatient suboxone program is chaotic and disorganized and the UA kits are frequently defective. Need to improve operations and services in the outpatient programs to be as good as the inpatient treatment

  • The groups are well organized and run by highly trained clinicians. If one is entering the IOP section of this program please be advised that there is a 25 dollar assessment fee along with a 300 dollar administrative fee for those on medicaid. Make sure to get a referral from your doctor and a prior authorization either from your doctor or SFRC. Programs that work with those on MAT can be hard to find. This facility is doing the Santa Fe community a huge service by being ahead of the game and offering different forms of treatment that could be considered much more progressive that what is most commonly available.

  • Do not chose this place. It is filthy, gross. It had bed bugs, was closed down for a bit. No 1 on 1. No outside activity. No connection to outside world except once a week for an hour.

  • They were absolutely amazing. Amazing caring staff. The counselors truly had their clients best interest at heart. A day never went by that we weren't being encouraged. Of course, we are a huge part of our own success, but with the tools and support they gave us, in my opinion, it's fail proof!
