Help for women using opioids during pregnancy
ProHealth Care offers specialized medical services for new mothers and mothers-to-be who are struggling with opioid use during any stage of pregnancy, through delivery and beyond.

- Blocks receptors in the brain to lessen the "high" and "low" effects of opioids.
- Decreases the risk of developing an opioid-related complication during pregnancy.
- Decreases the likelihood and severity of withdrawal symptoms in newborns.
Women continue to receive medication and support from a team of dedicated professionals after giving birth. For more information or to enroll in the program, call 262-548-6903.
