SAE’s Commitment to Addiction Service: Helping Providers Address the Opioid Epidemic

SAE has a dynamic role as behavioral health experts in leading the industry with policy to practice monitoring and implementation of mental health and addiction treatment parity. SAE also supports sharing knowledge of best practices to advance direct care and give providers the critical tools they need to continue to grow.

SAE is proud to announce the addition of Dr. Bruce Trigg to the roster of SAE’s Addiction Treatment Specialists. Dr. Trigg is available to facilitate trainings and seminars directly to provider agencies looking to implement or coordinate care with Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), as well as agencies working with the re-entry population struggling in addiction treatment engagement. 

Dr. Trigg is a public health physician who worked for 23 years with the New Mexico Department of Health where he was the medical director for the Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Program.  He led the effort to implement a public health and methadone maintenance program at the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center in Albuquerque. 

Dr. Trigg helped to develop and expand the statewide harm reduction program, including a needle and syringe exchange program, buprenorphine treatment, and overdose prevention with provision of naloxone.  

Since retiring from the Department of Health in 2011, Dr. Trigg has been the medical director for Opioid Treatment Programs in New Mexico. He has worked with the University of New Mexico ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) Program, a collaborative model of medical education and care management, and was on the faculty for physician buprenorphine waiver trainings.
