New Mexico consistently leads the nation in alcohol-related and drug overdose deaths. In an attempt to reduce the consequences of substance use disorder (SUD), a telehealth-SUD treatment program is being implemented at Sandoval Regional Medical Center to reach underserved rural communities. Peer Support Workers (PSWs) deliver culturally informed treatment and medical professionals provide medication addiction treatment. Data on participant outcomes and preliminary costs associated with peer delivered TH-SUD treatment are currently being collected.

Funding: Research reported in this presentation was supported by Congressionally Delegated funds administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Award Number 1H79FG000817-01.
