Break Down Barriers Begin your recovery journey.

You are more than your substance abuse or mental health disorder. Together, we can overcome barriers and help you live a healthy, happy life. Receive compassionate, respectful care from UNM Health, a nationally recognized leader in substance abuse and rural psychiatry.

We are the largest community mental health provider in the state and offer advanced treatments for a range of behavioral health disorders. We are the only center in New Mexico that offers neuromodulation – an advanced suite of therapies for treatment-resistant depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Locations in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho offer inpatient and outpatient care to meet your needs.

Diverse State, Unique Care

UNM behavioral health partners with the city of Albuquerque, along with state and local communities, to address New Mexico’s unique needs, including implementation of programs for Native Americans.

Our teams treat mental health disorders in vulnerable populations, including teens at risk for self-harm, those at risk for incarceration, and the homeless. We conduct needs assessment to determine the best course of personalized care for you or your loved ones.

Beyond behavioral care, we provide patients and families with referrals, help with housing and food stamps and serve as a guide through the whole recovery process.
