Do I Need Help?Could you (or someone you care about) benefit from getting an assessment at Rio Grande ATP? (If you're thinking about someone else, try to imagine how they would answer.)
- Have you ever felt irritated by other people's criticism of your drinking or drug use?
- Have you ever been ashamed of, or felt guilty about, your drinking or drug use?
- Is it difficult for you to go an entire week without once using alcohol or drugs?
- Has your drinking or drug use led to conflicts with important people in your life?
- Have you been ever arrested for an offense in which alcohol or drug use played a part?
- Have you ever been in a situation where you could have been arrested for an alcohol or drug-related offense, but avoided it by effort or plain luck?
Building Recovery-Friendly CommunitiesFor more than three decades, Rio Grande ATP has been helping communities and behavioral health professionals in north central New Mexico with training, information, and support. Substance abuse doesn't just affect the person who needs treatment--it devastates families and damages communities. Rio Grande is committed to building recovery-friendly communities in "el Norte" with education and support programs for families, training for behavioral health professionals, and information and resources for community leaders to address the problems of substance abuse.

Additional information and updates:
"The Anonymous People" was shown on Thursday October 17 at Taos Center for the Arts, 133 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, Taos, New Mexico. "The Anonymous People" is a feature documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction.
We had a turnout of about 240 people; almost every seat was filled. There were information tables from our partners in Recovery-Friendly Taos, including Community Against Violence, Taos Alive, Eight Northern Pueblos, Tri-County, Mesilla Valley Hospital, and Valle del Sol.
A brief Q&A session followed the film. There are tentative plans for more showings. Keep checking back for more details.
