New toolkit: Mothering & opioids

Historically, stigma, fear of incarceration, and fear of children being removed from the home have kept many women who use opioids from disclosing their substance use and getting help.

The Centre for Excellence on Women's Health has released a toolkit called "Mothering and Opioids." The toolkit is designed for practitioners, especially those in the areas of substance use and child welfare. It helps to identifu promising practices and policy responses that address stigma, health, substance use, and child protection concerns.
