​Perinatal and Neonatal Substance Abuse S​ervices

Comprehensive services for p​regnant women with opioid use disorder and their infants

About Us

As the number of pregnant women struggling with Opioid Use Disorder continues to rise, so does the need to provide comprehensive treatment services devoted to a healthy pregnancy for mom, a safe delivery for her baby, and a recovery plan for their futures. At Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, specifically-designed inpatient and outpatient programs are available to help pregnant women with Opioid Use Disorder and their babies.

Methadone Inpatient Conversion Program

Magee offers medicine-assisted treatment with methadone through an inpatient conversion program​. To be admitted into the program, a positive pregnancy test and positive opioid screening are required. Upon admission, patients receive prenatal care, social services support, and behavioral health counseling. Once discharged, patients will be connected with a local, federally-licensed methadone treatment program* for ongoing medicine-assisted treatment.

*Magee is not affiliated with any specific methadone clinic and will work with any community clinic to transition the patient to her community upon discharge.

Pregnancy Recovery Center (Outpatient Clinic)

The Pregnancy Recovery Center (PRC), a patient-centered medical home, provides comprehensive and compassionate care for pregnant women with Opioid Use Disorder. Patients enrolled in the program receive medicine-assisted treatment with buprenorphine, behavioral health counseling, social services support, and prenatal care. Conversions are done weekly in an office-based setting, and ongoing maintenance treatment is provided throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period. In the postpartum period, PRC staff connect with a community provider for ongoing medicine-assisted treatment.​
