General Information

Mescalero Tribal Human Services (MTHS) was established in the 1970’s by the Mescalero Apache Tribe to provide substance abuse services to in-patient and out-patient treatment for federally recognized tribal members.  MTHS has evolved to provide professional treatment for individuals and families who have problems with alcohol and drug addiction.

MTHS is funded through a grant from Indian Health Services for a no-cost 90-day Inpatient and Outpatient Program for all Federally recognized Enrolled Tribal Members. MTHS offers educational, physical, spiritual, mental, and moral treatment.

MTHS also offers 90-day Family Residential Treatment program that focuses on family preservation.  The family program allows one parent and up to three children who are between the ages of six months to 12 years old.

MTHS additionally offers Adolescent Outpatient and Aftercare Services.  The Adolescent Program focus on family issues and substance abuse counseling with an emphasis on prevention and recovery.

MTHS has a 12-week Aftercare Program for adults and adolescents to promote and encourage sobriety and relapse prevention.
