NM Bridge    is a statewide program to support hospitals looking to start providing buprenorphine treatment to persons with opioid use disorder.  The program has a robust, experienced Implementation Team to support all aspects of start up, sustainability and maintenance.  Part of what is offered is 24/7 access to live support from experts in buprenorphine and buprenorphine combination products (many know this as “Suboxone”) for OUD treatment and this is available to any provider statewide in any setting (e.g. FQHC, small primary care, behavioral health, OTPs, etc).  This 24/7 phone number goes directly to the UNM Poison Control Center team that is now prepared to field buprenorphine for OUD calls with back up as needed from our state’s top buprenorphine experts.
