Pregnancy and Substance Use: A Harm Reduction Toolkit
We want to promote the overall health and wellbeing
of pregnant people who use substances and their families.
We created this resource for pregnant and parenting people who use drugs, their loved ones, and their service providers.
You can use this information to understand your rights, access services, and find high-quality, evidence-based care.
If you are an agency or provider who is interested in adapting this toolkit for your community, email Erika at email@example.com
