Meridian Health Services

Meridian’s Maternal Treatment Program is an outpatient treatment program providing care and support to mothers struggling with substance use and their newborn babies—helping prevent NICU stays for newborns due to addiction withdrawal. The program’s services are designed to use “whole-person” health methods to prevent, educate, treat and provide community support for its patients. This helps change lifestyles of mothers in crisis, which in turn improves the outcomes for children born into addiction.
