Opiate Use Disorder (OUD) and its effect on families is an epidemic that is reaching every community, hospital, practice, and training program.

Every day, our teams deal with the struggles of screening, diagnosis, treatment, counseling, support services, acute withdrawal for the mother, and treatment of neonatal abstinence syndrome in the baby.

In materials below include an introduction to these issues with common language, case outlines for interactive discussion, and links to tools for further support for their inpatient and outpatient programs.
