Breaking Bad's cultural influence knows no bounds. With the show reaching its endgame, an Albuquerque rehab center is offering an unusual tie-in with the final episode; two free scholarships for addictions treatment.

Here's the info from

We are based in Albuquerque and our focus is on Mental Health, we naturally LOVE Breaking Bad! Although we are sad to see the show come to a close and leave our fair city, we do recognize that all good things must come to an end.

We would like to honor the end of Breaking Bad with bringing awareness to mental health and addictions treatment in our community. HealthShire is partnering with Sage Neuroscience Center to give two scholarships for addictions treatment in Albuquerque, NM. This Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a 12-week addictions treatment program that focuses on building the tools and acquiring the skills required to break addiction and begin the journey to recovery.

Healthshire is dedicated to bringing much-needed attention to the state of mental health and its treatment in New Mexico, the United States, and across the globe. We will be posting multiple blogs about addiction and its treatment every week during the contest and beyond in an effort to bridge together a supportive mental health community.

To apply, you need to be over 18, write an essay about your own addiction experience and submit an application by Sunday, September 22.

May I be the first to apply....My name is Matt and I'm addicted to Breaking Bad.
