Substance Misuse and Improve Child Welfare
“A Regional Partnership for New York City to Improve Child Welfare Outcomes Among Pregnant Women at Risk of Substance Misuse and Their Newborns”
This study recruits pregnant women and new mothers who are at risk of substance use concerns during pregnancy or delivery. These women are followed for 6 months and randomized into two groups; they may receive services as usual, or enhanced services. Enhanced services include evidence based interventions and case management to support referrals to substance abuse treatment, and to teach strategies specifically targeted to parenting newborns.
Behavioral - Enhanced Services
Participants receive enhanced services over a period of 6 months to support substance abuse recovery, referral to treatment, and parenting skills.
