Taos Substance Misuse Summit discusses addiction science, social impacts

Posted

The Taos Substance Misuse Summit drew a large audience of behavioral health professionals and county residents to University of New Mexico-Taos' Bataan Hall on Thursday (June 20) for an engaging discussion about the science and social impacts of addiction.

Organized by local anti-drug coalition Taos Alive, Holy Cross Medical Center and other county behavioral health agencies, ten speakers with various angles on the entrenched problem of substance abuse in Northern New Mexico drove the discussion and fielded questions from the audience.

Like a prior summit held in September, Lawrence Medina, director of Río Grande Alcoholism Treatment Program, and Ted Wiard, founder of Golden Willow Counseling, hosted the event, which ran from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
