SUD Treatment for Pregnant & Parenting Women

More than 40 years ago, our team recognized that women seeking treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) faced significant barriers, including parental responsibilities and a lack of familial and community support.

One of the primary reasons fewer women than men seek SUD treatment is the fear of not having a safe place to send their children while receiving care. Mothers seeking treatment may have no choice but to put their children in an untenable situation or may need to hand them over to foster care, disrupting their ability to parent their children.

In 1979, Gaudenzia responded to this need, proudly emerging as one of the first providers in the nation to offer treatment specifically designed to meet the needs of pregnant and parenting women (PPW). Today we provide preferential treatment to pregnant women with substance use disorders.

Gender-Responsive SUD Treatment

We’re proud to offer specialized programs where pregnant women can receive trauma-informed, gender-responsive, and culturally responsive care, and women with young children can keep their children with them during their treatment with us.

Our PPW program services include:

  • High-Intensity Residential SUD Treatment
  • Low-Intensity Residential SUD Treatment
  • Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Options
  • Individual and Group Counseling
  • Childcare
