Mission Statement:

Our mission is to advance those policies and attitudes that best reduce the harms of both drug misuse and drug prohibition, and to promote the sovereignty of individuals over their minds and bodies.

Primary Programs:

Drug Policy Alliance New Mexico (DPANM) is the leading organization in our state promoting alternatives to the failed war on drugs. We advocate for drug policies based on science, compassion, health, and human rights.

We’re working towards a system that embraces effective drug policies to 1) reduce death and disease, 2) protect children and families, 3) improve public safety, and 4) reduce crime.

To achieve these effective drug polices, our office focuses on the four essential pillars of drug policy: 1) harm reduction, 2) prevention, 3) treatment, and 4) public safety.

We work on issues ranging from effective youth drug education, to alternatives to incarceration for people with drug addictions, to improved reentry services and programs for people released from jail or prison. Together we can build a safer and healthier New Mexico. We achieve results through policy development, coalition building, advocacy, and research.
