Pregnancy Recovery Center at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC

Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and the nation are facing an increasing number of pregnant women struggling with an opioid addiction. 

In 2014, Magee, in collaboration with three local insurance companies and the Allegheny County Office of Behavioral Health, addressed this growing epidemic by opening a comprehensive Pregnancy Recovery Center (PRC) to provide concurrent treatment for opiate use disorders and prenatal care and delivery.

The PRC outpatient program offers comprehensive care for women with opiate use disorders by: 

  • Providing medical support to prevent withdrawal during pregnancy
  • Helping to reduce cravings
  • Preventing illicit use, thereby minimizing fetal exposure to illicit substances and engaging the mother as a leader in her recovery
  • Using buprenorphine to treat patients

The program offers outpatient office-based buprenorphine treatment in an integrated setting with routine obstetric services and prenatal care. In collaboration with the Perinatal Addiction Center of Addiction Medicine Services of Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC, patients also receive support and behavioral counseling services.

Magee's is the only inclusive integrated obstetrical substance abuse program in western Pennsylvania.
