New Beginnings is a program to promote education and support for pregnant and postpartum women in recovery from opioid use. To be eligible, you must be a pregnant and postpartum woman (up to 1 year postpartum) in recovery from opioid use. The program primarily focuses on women who are earlier in recovery (less than one year sober) and women who are on medication-assisted treatment (Subutex and methadone) during their pregnancy. However, any woman with a history of opioid use who feels like she would benefit is welcome to join.
