The Impacts of Stigma, Motherhood and Environmental Supports on Opioid Using Pregnant Women’s Recovery

In this MMP, the information presented will examine the phenomena through which the women can be enabled to overcome known obstacles-- such as stigma, guilt and the related trauma--and engage in treatment, to move into successful recovery. The goal of the workshop is to inform practice for effective treatment and health services engagement. The elements of trauma-informed care will be presented as well as how language can be misused and perpetuate bias.
