Maternal Opioid Management Support (MOMS)

OVERVIEW

Maternal Opioid Management Support (MOMS) imageIn 2016, the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine started a Maternal Opioid Management Support (MOMS), an outpatient program offering pregnant women comprehensive and compassionate care for opioid addiction. The first and only in the county, the MOMS program provides office-based buprenorphine treatment, behavioral health counseling, social services, and prenatal care to pregnant and postpartum women with opioid use disorder.
Women in the MOMS program receive treatment and medicine throughout their pregnancy. In the postpartum period, patients are connected with community providers to continue medicine-assisted treatment. Babies born to mothers enrolled in the MOMS program remain with their mothers whenever possible.

OUR MISSION

Opioid dependence is a chronic disease which can be managed and treated successfully in the majority of pregnant women. The MOMS accomplishes this by:

• Providing Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) to help prevent withdrawal during pregnancy
• Minimizing fetal exposure to illicit substances
• Engaging the mother as a leader in her own recovery
• Education and support
