This Clinical Guide provides comprehensive, national guidance for optimal management of pregnant and parenting women with opioid use disorder and their infants. The Clinical Guide helps healthcare professionals and patients determine the most clinically appropriate action for a particular situation and informs individualized treatment decisions.



1.      Recognize the historical context of past response to substance use to identify ways to change our current practices and policies to promote improved health and equitable access and outcomes.

2.      Recognize the importance of treating opioid use disorder in pregnancy for both the parent and infant.

3.      Identify ways practitioners can put into place the learning and measures needed to ensure equitable access and outcomes for people who are pregnant and parenting including those with substance use disorders.

4.      Prepare and execute appropriate treatment plans for opioid use disorder in the parent and fetus, as well as for neonatal abstinence syndrome in the infant during peripartum and postpartum period.

5.      Develop a conversation about what is going on in your area to enhance equity, what partnerships can be developed, what changes may be needed and how this can happen.

Intended Audience:
This program is designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, psychologists and any other interested member of the team providing coordinated care to individuals with a substance use disorder who are pregnant, postpartum or parenting.
