Meeting Time and Location:
From our partners at the National Council for Mental Wellbeing:
Opioid use disorder (OUD) can have complex, potentially fatal implications for new and expecting mothers and their babies, including low birth weight, clinical challenges with medical dosing and increased risk of accidental death. In the U.S., a baby is born passively dependent every 15 minutes. To ensure best health outcomes for both mother and child, policies must allow care providers to engage in evidence-based treatment and protect clients from legal ramifications.
