Perinatal Addiction Treatment Program

A Precious Opportunity

“She (the baby) changed everything. When I made my (first) appointment, I said ‘I’m pregnant, I’m an addict, will you take me?’ It was actually a huge relief”

Goodman, Saunders, Wolf, manuscript

Our mission is to help babies and children whose lives have been impacted by parental addiction by engaging mothers in the NH Wraparound Model early in their pregnancy; this is so they’ll have a support network at the time of the birth and the months and years following, enhancing the opportunity for a healthy attachment between the mother and baby and ultimately decreasing the need for intrusive interventions and state custody of the child.

Our objectives include:
Normal Birth weight and full gestation
Connection to concrete supports for mother and child
Improved parenting capabilities
Supported and sustained addiction recovery
Early identification of developmental delays in babies & children
