Alianza of New Mexico provides the following services for those who qualify:
The Harm Reduction Program works to reduce substance-related harm while enhancing individual, family, and community wellness. This is accomplished through the provision of linguistically appropriate and culturally competent services to individuals who inject substances.
Alianza offers a safe place for those who need to dispose of use and receive clean syringes. Services are available in both Roswell and Las Cruces.
We work to introduce the MAT (Medicated Assisted Treatment) process to healthcare providers and talk about what a DEA-X waiver can do for patients. MAT is an evidence-based process for reducing opioid overdoses in communities and with the result of reducing emergency room visits at hospitals.
Individuals who use substances can come to Alianza to learn where they can go for treatment options that may work for them, including MAT.
Overdose Prevention Education Including Naloxone (Narcan)
Training is available for individuals to learn how to identify someone who may be experiencing an overdose. Training includes providing care, such as rescue breathing until emergency services arrive. As part of this training, an individual can receive free naloxone (Narcan).
The HIV Prevention program at Alianza is made of a team of dedicated individuals focused on helping any person who comes in to our offices know their sexual health status. The goal is to support those who have become HIV positive by identifying their status with them and working to prevent new infections with this knowledge of status, and greater education for those who may be negative.
We offer rapid HIV testing (results while you’re here with us), rapid syphilis testing and rapid testing for hepatitis c (HCV), all in-office
We assist in making appointments at NM Department of Health (DOH) for full-panel testing (gonnorrhea, chlamydia, etc) and also referrals to DOH for confirmatory testing and treatments.
Testing hours are during our business hours at each office location and are found on the Contact Us page. Walk-ins are welcome and appointments can also be made by contacting us.
Many Men, Many Voices (3MV) is an HIV and STD prevention intervention for gay men of color to address factors that influence the behavior of gay men of color who have sex with men, including cultural, social, and religious norms; interactions between HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases; sexual relationship dynamics; and the social and psychological influences that racism and homophobia have on HIV risk behaviors. Peers play a big part in providing support and feedback on problem solving for each other. The goal of 3MV is to empower young men to effectively negotiate safer sex with their partners.
Healthy Relationships: an intervention for men and women living with HIV/AIDS; based on Social Cognitive Theory and focuses on developing skills and building self-efficacy and positive expectations about new behaviors through modeling behaviors and practicing new skills. We focus on creating a positive and engaging atmosphere so that participants can think about making informed and safe decisions about disclosure to family, friends and sexual partners in their lives. This empowers individuals to build healthier and safer sexual relationships.
We work with clients throughout the state of New Mexico to find housing opportunities funded through state and federal sources. Qualifying individuals are eligible to apply for short term rental assistance, first month’s rent / deposit, rental application fees, utility assistance and help with moving costs.
Our services program complements primary medical care and brings essential support services to people living with HIV. Intended for those who do not have sufficient healthcare coverage, this program fills gaps in the bridge to care.
MCM is the initial link to all case management services. A case manager conducts an initial assessment and will work with the person to create an individualized plan for care, complete with personal goals. The plan may include achieving viral suppression (undetectable status), medication adherence (taking medication as prescribed to maintain a healthy status), or even steps to better communication between clients and their medical providers. A MCM will also work with a client to enroll them in health insurance and programs to cover costs of medications and treatments.
NMCM concentrates on the provision of advice and assistance in a client’s journey to obtaining social, community, legal, financial, and housing services. These case managers aid with transportation for medical care, emotional support referrals, education related to health, food assistance and other resources for healthy and safe living.
Several types of medication assistance and health insurance options are available for clients living in New Mexico. Programs exist that can be accessed through a Medical Case Manager.
Alianza hosts a satellite medical clinic location within our building in Roswell, NM. This office provides in-person appointments and tele-medicine for clients who are established with Alianza for services.
Alianza hosts support groups for established clients at both office locations (Roswell and Las Cruces, NM) every week. These group meetings involve guest speakers, open forums for conversation, and meetings with designated topics.
