|11/16/2012 -ATIN- A plan for a big expansion of one New Mexico’s oldest addiction treatment drug rehab alcohol rehab players, the 30-yr-old University of New Mexico affiliated Addictions and Substance Abuse Program, ASAP, has been shelved because of intense neighborhood opposition, according to University of New Mexico Hospitals CEO Steve McKernan.|
Admittedly, the neighborhood in Albuquerque proposed for the big ASAP expansion already has a lot of addictions facilities, including a couple of methadone clinics, Bernalillo County’s government owned detox facility, private inpatient provider Turquoise Lodge and a pretty big private sober living operation called Endorphin Power Company. UNM Behavioral finance chief Rodney McNease said that a location search for ASAP expansion will continue urgently, adding that area services capabilities have declined in the past 20 yrs accompanied by a vast increase in the numbers of addicted individuals needing help.
