Substance Use, Pregnancy, and HIV/AIDS: Treatment Programs for Pregnant Women
This living document identifies existing substance use treatment programs and services available to pregnant women and pregnant women living with HIV/AIDS in North America, with a particular focus on Saskatchewan. The information provided through the current environmental scan is useful both for pregnant women who use substances who are seeking services, and for healthcare professionals, who can use this information to assist women in accessing services that are appropriate to their needs. Ideally, this would be done as part of a multidisciplinary team, where the referring professional continues to be involved in the care of the woman. It is hoped that the information provided will increase awareness of the existing substance use treatment centres and programs for pregnant women, with the goal of potentially increasing referrals to and use of these programs.
