Kathy Sutherland-Bruaw
Founder/Executive Director at Inside Out

Hi Joseph, I am not very good at keeping up with so many things! Apologies again! Yes, Inside Out is a completely peer run organization that I founded in 2008. We are a peer wellness center-we offer hope to those who suffer from addiction and are reaching for recovery. Those of us in recovery realize that this is a lifelong process and we do not judge. We offer services now 7 days a week and people can walk in-no appointment necessary. We realize that many will come in during a crisis and people don't make or keep appointments in crisis mode. We offer individual peer support-which is an evidence based practice, groups, a free clothing bank, job development assistance, community referrals, and also we welcome children and families. We have a "kids corner" where children can play with toys and watch videos while their parents receive services. We are a recovery family and we have that feeling in the center-all are welcome and all are treated with respect. We also offer the Seeking Safety trauma curriculum in group format which is gender specific on a weekly basis. We received a PCORI grant to offer this in collaboration with The LifeLink and UNM Center for Rural and Community Behavioral Health. We believe that recovery is possible and we keep what we have by sharing it! Thanks for asking Joseph! You can see more at
