Maternal addiction treatment

Substance abuse and addiction, whether it involves drugs or alcohol, is exceptionally challenging for pregnant women. It can contribute to high-risk pregnancy and lead to many complications for moms and babies, such as neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS).

To help with this particularly difficult and complex situation, we offer a special maternal addiction treatment program as part of our prenatal care. Our support teams will deliver compassionate, careful care to help you and baby get as healthy as possible.

Our community partners

We work closely with community partners, including The Jason Foundation, which is dedicated to the prevention of the "silent epidemic" of youth suicide. Together, we offer educational and awareness programs. We support the foundation's mission to equip young people, educators, youth workers and parents with tools and resources to help identify and assist at-risk youth.
