Substance Use and Pregnancy—Part 1: Current State Policies on Mandatory Reporting and Implementing Plans of Safe Care to Support Pregnant Persons With Substance Use Disorders

The first in a series, this article reviews current federal and state policies for mandatory reporting, implications of these policies, and resources available to encourage collaboration between agencies and understand the response to their respective state policies. The goal of this brief is to encourage collaboration between those individuals involved in the criminal justice system and health care and human services providers.

Subsequent articles in this series will examine approaches to integrate treatment for substance use disorders into obstetrics and gynecology care and strategies for financial support of long-term recovery programs.
