PROUD: Parents Recovering from Opioid Use Disorder
PROUD is a new SAMHSA-funded program of the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) that aims to serve pregnant and postpartum women with substance use disorders, including opioid use disorder, in the Greater Hartford and New Britain areas.
PROUD teams will complete a family needs assessment with eligible women and their household members to create a plan to address individual and family needs around: substance use and mental health treatment, connections to medical providers (including prenatal care), employment, housing, and recovery support.
