New Mexico

The Drug Policy Alliance is the leading organization in New Mexico promoting alternatives to the failed war on drugs. We advocate for drug policies based on science, compassion, health, and human rights. We’re working towards a system that embraces effective drug policies to 1) reduce death and disease, 2) protect children and families, 3) improve public safety, and 4) reduce crime.
To achieve these effective drug polices, our office focuses on the four essential pillars of drug policy: 1) harm reduction, 2) prevention, 3) treatment, and 4) public safety. We work on issues ranging from effective youth drug education, to alternatives to incarceration for people with drug addictions, to improved reentry services and programs for people released from jail or prison. Together we can build a safer and healthier New Mexico.
