Patient Treatment Resources


 

Each region is different and many communities do not have access to alcohol and substance abuse treatment centers. In the event a pregnant patient does screen positive for alcohol consumption, there are several options you may suggest depending on the resources available — including your health center’s behavioral health or counseling department, drug and alcohol prevention program, or family support program.
