Albuquerque, NM asked in Consumer Law and Health Care Law for New Mexico

Q: How can I find out the standards for methadone clinics in New Mexico?

Must a provider be a physician? Must a patient take daily dose on site, or are doses sent home? If I have concerns about a clinic, who do I report my concerns to?
