FQA

What is PTSD?

PTSD is the common term for the mental illness known as posttraumatic stress disorder. This mental health condition is commonly diagnosed in individuals who have suffered high levels of stress that are either acute or chronic. Experiencing unexpected tragedy or loss or working in certain dangerous professions may also put you at higher risk for developing PTSD.

What are the best treatment centers for PTSD?

If you or someone you care about is struggling with PTSD, seeking treatment at a residential treatment center that offers comprehensive, multidisciplinary therapeutic services can help you or your loved one overcome symptoms of this condition. Look for programming that you feel will best meet your needs, especially if you are dealing with a substance use disorder or other mental health condition in addition to PTSD. With the proper care, you can address the many ways that symptoms of this condition can affect your mind, body, and spirit.

How can you tell if someone has PTSD?

While each person’s experience of PTSD will differ based on their unique experiences, there are some common symptoms that may indicate the presence of PTSD. If a loved one begins exhibiting signs of depression, has trouble sleeping, appears angry or agitated for unknown reasons, fears leaving the house or being in certain situations, has nightmares that recall the tragic event(s), or experiences flashbacks, they may be suffering from PTSD. Of course, it is always best to seek a thorough evaluation from a qualified mental health professional to obtain an assessment and diagnosis.

What events cause PTSD?

Major tragedies, natural disasters, abuse and/or neglect, military combat, the stress of being a first responder, unexpected loss, and other similar hardships have been known to precede the onset of PTSD.

Is depression common with PTSD?

Depression is a common co-occurring condition with PTSD, and both disorders share some of the same symptoms. If a person is struggling with PTSD and depression, the symptoms of both disorders must be addressed throughout treatment in order for the individual to experience true and lasting healing. Many programs offer specialized programming for individuals who are struggling with co-occurring disorders such as depression and PTSD.

What are the effects of PTSD?

PTSD can take its toll on your physical health, such as causing disruptions in eating, sleeping, organ health, and other major bodily functions. It can also impact your emotional and social wellbeing. Individuals with PTSD may be unable to sustain healthy relationships, and friendships and romantic partnerships may be negatively impacted as a result of the condition. One’s employment and financial security can be affected as well because PTSD can make it difficult to uphold professional responsibilities.

What are some signs of PTSD?

As stated above, no two people are alike, and therefore each person’s experience of PTSD will differ slightly. But if you find yourself feeling a sense of pervasive anxiety or sadness, if you worry about controlling your temper more than you used to, if you’re plagued by chronic fatigue, and if you worry about leaving your home or participating in activities you once enjoyed, you may be suffering from PTSD.

The medical conditions are: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Cancer, Crohn’s Disease, Epilepsy, Glaucoma, Hepatitis C Infection currently receiving antiviral treatment (proof of current anti-viral treatment required), HIV/AIDS, Huntington’s Disease, Hospice Care, Inclusion Body Myositis, Inflammatory autoimmune-mediated arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Damage to the nervous tissue of the spinal cord, with (proof of objective neurological indication of intractable spasticity required), Painful Peripheral Neuropathy, Parkinson’s disease, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Severe Chronic Pain, Severe Anorexia/Cachexia, Spasmodic Torticollis (Cervical Dystonia), Ulcerative Colitis.

Can other medical conditions be added to the list of qualifying medical conditions for the Medical Cannabis Program?

Yes, the Medical Advisory Board can be petitioned with a request to add a new medical condition to the list of qualifying medical conditions for the Medical Cannabis Program. The Medical Advisory Board will hold a public meeting about the condition where the petitioner, or anybody from the public, is allowed to present evidence to the board about the benefits of cannabis relating to the medical condition. The board members will then decide whether or not they think medical cannabis is a viable treatment for the medical condition. Once the Medical Advisory Board reaches a decision they will submit the recommendation to the Secretary of the Department of Health for consideration. In order for the medical condition to be added to the list of qualifying medical conditions it must be approved by both the Medical Advisory Board and the Secretary of the Department of Health.

If I have one of the qualifying medical conditions am I automatically certified for the Medical Cannabis Program?

No. First you must receive a certification from medical provider stating that you have one of the qualifying medical conditions. Then you must submit an application to New Mexico Department of Health’s Medical Cannabis Program administrator’s office along with all the required forms.

What does a medical cannabis certification, or to be certified for the Medical Cannabis Program mean? Is a certification the same as a referral?

A medical cannabis certification, or to be certified for the Medical Cannabis Program, means that the patient has received an evaluation from a medical provider attesting that the patient has one of the qualifying medical conditions and that the medical provider is referring the patient for the medical cannabis program. A referral or recommendation have the same meaning as certify or certification for the Medical Cannabis Program.

In order to apply for a medical cannabis card in New Mexico you will need the following:

certification form signed by a medical practitioner

Is there a way to expedite my medical cannabis application?

No. In order to be fair the medical cannabis applications are processed in the order in which they are received.

If the application was denied then the applicant will receive a letter explaining why the application was denied. If you have not received a response after the 30 day period then you can contact the New Medical Cannabis by phone and request a status update.
