UPMC Magee Recovery Services offers a variety of programs and services to help women with opioid use disorder (OUD) get on the path to recovery.
The Pregnancy Recovery Center (PRC) offers the region’s first comprehensive outpatient medicine-assisted treatment (MAT) program for pregnant women. Participants who are eligible for buprenorphine-naloxone receive recovery support and medication, coordination of prenatal care, social services support and are linked to a certified recovery specialist. The program combines innovative therapies and compassionate care with psychosocial support and education that sets new mothers and their babies up for successful futures.
The Inpatient Methadone is designed for pregnant women with OUD who are not eligible for outpatient care. This program offers conversion from opioids to methadone in an inpatient setting and coordination of care to a community methadone clinic upon discharge. The women receive the same therapies, care, and support as the PRC program while women are admitted to the hospital for intense MAT therapy and monitoring. Average hospital stays are 3-5 days.
The Parent Partnership Unit (PPU) enables mothers in recovery to share a private room with their baby while the baby receives inpatient care for neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) — the presence of withdrawal symptoms in newborns.
The Women’s Recovery Center is an outpatient buprenorphine-naloxone program providing direct care of women who are not pregnant while assisting with recovery from opioid use disorder. The women receive the same recovery, social services, and certified recovery specialist support as the PRC with coordination of well-womens appointments. Consultative and coordination of recovery care is also available for women suffering from any and all substance use disorders.
