Enhanced Outpatient Program for Pregnant & Parenting Women Struggling with Opiate Use Disorder



An enhanced outpatient program is helping pregnant or parenting women who are struggling with opiate use disorder. The program, which was started in September by Henrico Area Mental Health & Developmental Services, is designed to serve up to 30 women at a time as well as their children. It provides medication-assisted treatment, housing and transportation support and other resources for the family.

If you need help, “absolutely, reach out to Mental Health,” said Serenity Kirby, a program client. “Don’t give up. Don’t feel like you’re not going to be able to do it, because there’s always a way to do it. Just keep pushing. Love that baby.”

To access services, call (804) 727-8515 or walk in to the MHDS East Center at 3908 Nine Mile Road. More information is available at https://henrico.us/news/2023/08/with-opioid-settlement-grants-henrico-seeks-treatment-for-the-moms-prevention-for-the-kids/.
