For Expectant Mothers:
First of all, you don’t have to face this challenge alone. We know you are a loving mother who cares for and desires to assure the best health and well-being of your new baby. We are here to advocate for you and guide you through the often-complex process of either medically assisted tapering to abstinence or a low dose of buprenorphine; the best alternative medication to opioids while pregnant.
Second, it is important to know that we are here to assist you in creating the life you desire for yourself and your baby. We have developed relationships with like-minded professionals and resources from across the state to address each of your most critical life needs, including medically assisted tapering, behavioral and mental health assessment and counseling, food, shelter, employment, transportation, baby items, and much more.
Third, and most importantly, we will meet you where you are in your life, not judging, shaming or hurting, but providing empathy, compassion and hope. Our mission is to build you up, not tear you down, and find a solution that fits your personal circumstances including your employment, family and personal situation, so you can be successful in achieving your goals. We will be your mentor, your friend, your advocate and your guide to the life of your choosing.
For Collaborative Partners:
We partner with you to help expecting mothers accomplish safe, medically-assisted tapering during their pregnancy with the twofold goal of long-term non-dependence on opioids and the significant reduction of pain, suffering, cost and mortality of babies experiencing opioid withdrawal, known as Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).
Through our partnership with the health plans, OB/GYNs, other physicians, behavioral health services, and community resources we are able to directly provide and coordinate the comprehensive services opioid addicted mothers desire and need to provide the best opportunity for successful complete opioid tapering, sustained opioid-free living, and full-term delivery of their healthy new baby.
