PMH Care Pathways: Management of Substance Use in Pregnancy

Management of Substance Use In Pregnancy

Substance use is a persistent challenge in our society across all demographic groups and raises specific concerns and complications in pregnancy. Screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based approach to addressing substance use in clinical practices and is endorsed in the obstetric setting. Brief interventions in the prenatal care setting serve as teachable moments and may help women with substance use in pregnancy to reduce or eliminate use. For some women, the SBIRT approach will lead to treatment and recovery. The benefits of the pregnant woman’s behavioral change have proven to be effective in improving birth outcomes for the newborn.
