Milagro provides substance abuse aftercare recovery support to pregnant or postpartum women with substance issues needing such care in order to maintain a lifestyle of recovery from addiction. Treatment outcomes for the women focus on improving the health and recovery of the mother, facilitating safe deliveries of healthy babies, and providing successful transition back into the community. Bernalillo County partners with UNM’s FOCUS program which provides prenatal care by experts in the field of maternal fetal medicine, case management, childbirth education classes and delivery of the baby at University Hospital.
Admission to the Milagro Program is determined by the University of New Mexico, the New Mexico State Department of Health, and Bernalillo County.
Typically, a woman is pregnant before she enters the Milagro program. Postpartum women remain in the Milagro program for a length of time determined by her individual service plan.
Housing for Milagro clients is located at 5901 Zuni, SE, a couple of blocks east of San Mateo.
The phone number is 468-1569.
Clients are housed at Milagro for no charge.
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 staff inquires as to whether a person is in Milagro, inquires about the person’s progress, asks about past participation in Milagro, or asks any other questions about Milagro clients, the standard answer will be that staff can neither confirm nor deny the person’s presence at Milagro.
