Pregnancy Recovery Center at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC

About Us

In 2014, Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC opened its Pregnancy Recovery Center (PRC), an outpatient program offering pregnant women comprehensive and compassionate care for opioid addiction. The first and only in the region, the PRC provides office-based buprenorphine treatment, behavioral health counseling, social services, and prenatal care to pregnant and postpartum women with Opioid Use Disorder.
