Treating opioid use disorder (OUD) is a challenge in part because of the stigma associated with addiction. That’s especially true for pregnant women, where the stigma of maternal OUD is even more pronounced and tends to operate on multiple levels – impacting not just expecting mothers but infants and families as well. During this webinar, HMA addiction experts will show how the stigma of material OUD hinders access to evidence-based interventions including Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). Speakers will also offer strategies and pathways for ensuring that women struggling with maternal OUD and their families receive the care they need.
