Substance Exposed Pregnancies
As part of the BHB Initiative, the Baltimore City Health Department has pulled together a coalition of providers and policymakers working to prevent substance-exposed pregnancies in the city. The coalition is one of six teams nationally receiving technical assistance from CityMATCH’s Prevention of Substance-Exposed Pregnancies (PSEP) Collaborative.
The PSEP Collaborative is exploring ways to increase screening/brief intervention/referral to treatment (SBIRT) in school, healthcare, and social service settings. A second priority is to increase referrals between drug treatment programs and family planning services.
