THE MOUNTAIN CENTER

Therapeutic Outdoor Adventure and Behavioral Health Services in New Mexico

Our Mission

To promote wellness, personal discovery, and social change through innovative learning experiences in wilderness, community, and cultural environments.

Resilience

When facing hardship, everyone needs a reminder that they are strong enough, brave enough and worthy enough to break through. Our work is dedicated to showing people just that. The golden thread that runs through all The Mountain Center’s programming is the support and recognition of resilience in the youth, adults and communities of New Mexico.

TRANSITIONAL LIVING PROGRAM

The Mountain Center's Transitional Living Program offers a holistic, individualized, and supportive healing process for women diagnosed with substance disorders. This residential setting helps women establish a stable, health-oriented, recovery with positive skills and habits — the keys to embracing a substance-free lifestyle. Long-term recovery requires learning new skills for life, relationships, and self-care in order to successfully transition into the community. The typical length of stay is 3-6 months.

Your Donations Matter

The Mountain Center relies on the community to create an environment for people to heal.
