Our Programs

Rehabilitation programs play an intricate role in corrections; NMCD is more than prisons. We have a vision of a strong New Mexico, and in order to achieve that, our facilities offer both cognitive and vocational programs to inmates. These programs are meant to give them the skills and confidence to build better lives for themselves and their families.
