Currently the ECHO Institute at the University of New Mexico offers a number different technical assistance programs that address Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and/or Substance Use Disorder (SUD).  All of our teleECHO sessions are provided at no cost. These projects provide a unique opportunity to help all members of health care teams improve their knowledge, skill and confidence in treating patients with OUD/SUD in the security and familiarity of their primary care clinic.
