A new digital resource, 5-Actions Program™ (NM5actions.com) is designed to help adults (18
years of age and older) address challenges associated with alcohol, other drugs, and behavioral addictions (e.g.,
gambling, sex, technology, food) is free for residents of New Mexico, announced the New Mexico Crisis and
Access Line (NMcrisisline.com) in partnership with ProtoCall Services, Inc., and with Digital Therapeutics
Group LLC. The funding for the program is provided by the New Mexico Human Services Department,
Behavioral Health Services Division.
“The 5-Actions Program offers an important, scientifically-based resource to all New Mexicans looking for an
immediately available resource to help them evaluate, and if they so choose, to take action that can alter a
pattern of substance use creating problems for them or their families,” said Behavioral Health Services Division
Director Neal A. Bowen, PhD. “It also offers the potential of supplementing the efforts of therapists, emergency
departments, and peers to accompany people undertaking the challenging path of change. We are pleased to
offer this unique resource to all our neighbors in the state at no cost to them.”
The program comes at a critical time with COVID-19 increasing rates of substance use and overdose. An
important benefit is that it can be accessed 24/7 from the safety of one’s home. It also helps address the
significant gap in those who could benefit from an intervention, but are unable to access care.
