The New Mexico Heroin and Opioid Prevention and Education Initiative was launched by the University of New Mexico and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in January 2015 in response to a national opioid epidemic which has greatly impacted New Mexico.

Commissioner Hart Stebbins, the Bernalillo County Opioid Accountability Initiative, Albuquerque Public Schools, the Albuquerque City Council and other partners were honored today at the Thirteenth Annual U.S. Attorney’s Law Enforcement Awards Ceremony.
