State Options for Promoting Recovery among Pregnant and Parenting Women with Opioid or Substance Use Disorder

The opioid epidemic has heightened states’ efforts to prevent and treat of substance use disorder (SUD) in pregnant and parenting women. The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP), with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration, interviewed Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Texas officials about the unique interagency approaches they are using to promote recovery for this population. This new report explores:

  • State coverage, care delivery, and financing strategies to support pregnant and parenting women with SUD;
  • Available state and federal funding sources for these initiatives; and
  • Key considerations for states working to promote recovery.
