Webinar Title:
Addiction, Pregnancy, and Postpartum Depression: A Look into a Neglected Issue and Population 

Webinar Description: 
This webinar will provide an in-depth overview of pregnancy and postpartum depression in relation to substance abuse. There is an overall gap in research regarding these issues, despite binge-drinking and polysubstance abuse rates being higher than women who did not give birth or who did give birth but did not have postpartum depression. Opioid use disorders are of particular concern as many Mothers do not receive medication-assisted treatment for opioid use, triggering additional problems. Diagnostic criteria, integrated treatment methods, as well as, specialized counseling will be covered.
