Northwest New Mexico Correctional Center

Northwest New Mexico Correctional Center (NNMCC) will house up to 744 male inmates who are within two years of release, and provide intensive reentry programs designed to prepare inmates for life outside the prison walls.

The new mission and extensive program offerings reflect New Mexico’s increasing emphasis on inmate reentry.

With most of the inmates housed at NNMCC having only two years or less remaining on their sentences, roughly half will have already earned a GED prior to being placed at NNMCC. While residing at NNMCC, inmates will have access to reentry programs that are largely focused on drug and alcohol treatment and management. 

Additionally, NNMCC will be one of the first CoreCivic facilities to implement a process called “Go Further,” which is founded on the belief that every moment of incarceration should be focused on successful reentry. “Go Further” is a three-step process that provides tools for success. In the midst of the process, there will be the availability to participate in programs such as Education, Faith-Based, Substance Use Disorder Treatment, Family Reunification, and Reentry Skills that provide inmates with the tools needed to make good choices in life.

The new mission and extensive program offerings reflect New Mexico’s increasing emphasis on inmate reentry.
