      • The American Society of Addiction Medicine is having a webinar that focuses on updated 2020 recommendations to the ASAM National Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder for pregnant women. Many of the risks associated with opioid use disorder are similar for both pregnant and non-pregnant women. However, opioid use disorder carries additional risks for pregnant women and prenatal risk for the developing fetus. Treatment of pregnant women with MOUD is associated with substantial improvement in outcomes for both mother and child. This webinar will provide an overview of the new and updated recommendations and in-depth information on treating pregnant women from the ASAM NPG.
