Started in 1989 as the first program in the state of New Mexico for pregnant women with substance abuse/addiction issues, Milagro has served over 2,000 women since its beginning.
The Milagro Program provides comprehensive care for pregnant women. Women receive prenatal care from Family Practice providers in the outpatient Family Medicine Clinics. In addition to medical services, the Milagro Program provides outpatient counseling and case management support. Through frequent follow up and a team approach to wellness, the medical, nursing, and counseling staff work together to help expecting mothers and their families transition during the prenatal and postpartum period.
The Milagro Program enrolls any pregnant woman with a history of or current substance abuse issues. Medication assisted treatment is additionally available to women with addictions to opiates and heroin, through the use of buprenorphine (Subutex) or methadone. The team of providers can follow the women and their newborns during inpatient hospital stays, forming a treatment plan based on their specific needs. The Milagro Program works closely with the FOCUS program to ensure that families continue receiving comprehensive treatment services after delivery.
