Opioid Use Disorder During Pregnancy
Opioid dependence during pregnancy has been associated with numerous adverse fetal outcomes related to drug use such as poor nutrition, and inadequate prenatal care. If you or a loved one are addicted to/misusing opioids during pregnancy it is critical to get them into treatment as early as possible to avoid unnecessary and life-threatening complications.
