Pregnancy and Medication‐Assisted Treatment

Developed jointly by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and Department of Public Health (DPH) Bureau of Substance Abuse Services (BSAS). DCF and DPH work together to support pregnant women in recovery, who, as part of their addiction treatment, receive methadone or buprenorphine (the active ingredient in both Suboxone and Subutex), known as Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).
