Treatment for Pregnant Women Abusing Substances

Individuals who are pregnant, intravenous drug users, abusing substances, and in medically-monitored withdrawal management may be eligible for prevention, treatment, and recovery support services and activities.

Priority admissions to licensed treatment agencies are:

  • Pregnant Intravenous Drug Users
  • Pregnant Substance Users
  • Intravenous Drug Users
  • Medically Monitored Withdrawal Management (Crisis Detoxification)

Eligibility based on the Federal Poverty Guidelines

Services target adolescents and adults in need of treatment and/or recovery support services including detoxification, outpatient treatment, and HIV outreach.

Services are evidence-based and culturally competent for individuals such as children of substance-abusing parents, children with incarcerated parents, children in foster care, and county-level coalitions that foster community environments discouraging substance misuse and abuse.
