The opioid abuse epidemic’s far-reaching consequences include pregnant and postpartum women and their children, who may be negatively affected by their mother’s past, current, and potential future drug use. Helping women struggling with substance abuse is beneficial to both them and their children.
There is already a significant amount of money going towards addressing the opioid epidemic at local, state, and federal levels, including through Medicaid and other programs that specifically address the needs of pregnant and postpartum women struggling with opioid addiction.
