The New Mexico Women’s Recovery Academy (NMWRA) opened in July of 2005. The facility moved from Los Lunas, NM to Albuquerque, NM in June 2009. Offenders are referred through the New Mexico prison and court systems.

NMWRA provides a full array of residential reentry treatment services designed to reduce recidivism, including individual assessments, individual and group counseling, substance abuse treatment, parenting and anger management classes, and educational services.

The services at this facility focus on peer-led education, which provides the social skills necessary to successfully reenter society. NMWRA functions as a Therapeutic Community (TC) by providing a highly structured environment, which employs community, imposed sanctions and penalties, as well as earned advancement of status and privileges as part of the recovery and growth process.

The goal of NMWRA is to provide an intensive treatment program that emphasizes relapse prevention. This goal is accomplished by changing an individual’s lifestyle through a community of concerned people working together to help themselves and each other.
