Are you struggling with substance use?

You are not alone

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Moms in Recovery is a safe space where you can meet with other women who are in recovery from addiction and get help with recovery.

What are the possible signs of a substance use disorder?

  • Spending a lot of your time and money on getting and using drugs
  • Using more than you intend to or having difficulty stopping
  • Suffering from withdrawal symptoms when you do not use

Medications for substance use disorders

When you use heroin, alcohol, or other substances, you are at higher risk for overdose and infections, which can harm both you and your baby.

We can prescribe medications to help you stop using substances, including buprenorphine (Suboxone) or naltrexone for opioid use disorder. We also prescribe medications to help you stop using alcohol or tobacco.

Who we are

Moms in Recovery is a program for pregnant and parenting women who struggle with substance use. At Moms in Recovery you will meet other women who are working hard to stop using substances and support each other as parents. You will be able to form close relationships with counselors, psychiatrists, midwives, pediatricians, case managers and recovery coaches. These professionals can support you in developing a healthy lifestyle that is rewarding and free from substance use.
