Bernalillo County’s Department of Substance Abuse Programs (DSAP) Community Addiction Program (CAP) provides evidence-based addiction treatment services to clients who have been identified as having addiction treatment needs after they have been released from the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center to the Community Custody Program (CCP) or clients who have been referred from other DSAP programs. CAP is an American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) outpatient treatment program. CAP uses the Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) curricula.
CAP services are offered at 401 Roma, NW, 5th Floor, Albuquerque.
Clients are sent to CAP by court order from Metro or District Courts or by DSAP program referral. Clients must have a DWI conviction within the last five years or have a current pending DWI charge or have charges or conviction for domestic violence. Walk-ins and self-referrals are not admitted.
Depending on the client’s individual service plan, the program can last up to 26 weeks.
The phone number is 468-1590.
No fee is charged for these services.
No. The confidentiality of alcohol and drug abuse patient records maintained by DSAP programs is protected by federal law and regulations (per 42 CFR Part 2). Generally, program staff may not disclose to a person outside the program that a client attends the program, or disclose any information identifying a client as an alcohol or drug abuser unless: The client consents in writing (signed release of information (ROI) on file); the disclosure is allowed by a court order, including a search warrant; the disclosure is made to medical personnel in a medical emergency or to designated and qualified staff for research, audit, or program evaluation. Upon request by the client, discharge summaries or letters of completion may be given to the client and the client may then share copies of these items at their discretion. Absolutely no information pertaining to clients may be released over the phone. If someone besides Department of Substance Abuse or CCP or MDC staff inquires as to whether a person is in CAP, inquires about the person’s progress, asks about past participation in CAP, or asks any other questions about CP clients, the standard answer will be that staff can neither confirm nor deny the person’s presence in CAP programs.
