RGH Clinic

Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse

RGH is excited to partner with the University of New Mexico in bringing the Behavioral health and Substance Abuse Echo project to Portales. Project ECHO is funded in part by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and has received support from the New Mexico Legislature, the University of New Mexico, and the New Mexico Department of Health. Project Echo-Access is dedicated to reaching out and serving rural areas in training and providing teams with specific curriculum tailored to the needs of each individual site. RGH and Echo will together use resources to provide local and culturally appropriate services to patients in order to prevent patients from having to travel extreme distances, waiting extended periods of times, or not having an established relationship with the facility and or provider.
