Through the Mother & Baby Substance Use Exposure Initiative, Health Management Associates (HMA) worked with the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative and the California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative to deliver state-of-the-art treatment from the prenatal phase to the post-delivery phase. This project concluded in December 2020.
The goal of the initiative was to increase access to MAT treatment for opioid use disorder, reducing unmet treatment need and opioid overdose related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and recovery activities for opioid use disorder. Additionally, the initiative aimed to decrease neonatal abstinence syndrome severity and length of stay in the hospital, and to increase the number of mothers in long-term recovery. The initiative has curated and developed materials for providers and patients on the AddictionFreeCa.org website, as well as creating a toolkit for addressing Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome
