Service for pregnant women with opioid dependency.
Methadone treatment is safe for the baby, keeps mothers free of withdrawal and gives mothers a chance to take care of themselves. Pregnant women may be admitted to methadone treatment even with less than one-year history of opiate addiction. Taking methadone during pregnancy can reduce the chance of miscarriage and premature labor. Newborns will have methadone in their bodies, but studies show tha they can be weaned with no adverse effects. During pregnancy, the patient is placed on the lowest effective dose of methadone and should eliminate or reduce cravings for illicit opiates and will prevent withdraal. We currently provide referrals to Good Samaritan and University Hospital and work with their high risk pregnancy professionals We also accept referrals from those hospitals as well as private OB GYNs.
