Catholic Medical Center launches program to help pregnant NH women combat addiction


MANCHESTER — The Pregnancy Care Center at Catholic Medical Center (CMC) is launching a new program to provide addiction treatment and recovery services to pregnant women in the greater Manchester area.

The Roots for Recovery program, supported by a $25,000 grant from Digital-Federal Credit Union, is open to qualified, pregnant women with substance use disorders.

Women who take part in the program will get perinatal medical care and group counseling at the Pregnancy Care Center while also receiving buprenorphine treatment through CMC.

Successful participants will earn points toward gear and accessories for their baby.

Women in the program will deliver their babies at the Mom's Place at CMC and have access to the services of the Special Car Nursery.

Follow-up care will also be given to the mother and baby for one year.

The Pregnancy Care Center will work with local methadone clinics, treatment centers, and other recovery entry points to identify eligible women. Anyone interested in learning more about the program or how to enroll can contact Renee Maloney, RN, program co-coordinator, at the Pregnancy Care Center at 603-663-8100.
