This program provides housing, medical services, case management, and drug rehabilitation services to Pregnant/Post Partum Women and their infants.

Millagro serves women in the community, as well as women transitioning from MDC. To be considered for the Millagro Residential Program, an application must be completed and submitted to DSAP. Admissions to the program are based on a joint decision from UNM, DOH, and DSAP to ensure all aspects of care needs are met.
