About the Maternal Addiction Treatment Education and Research (MATER) Program
Jefferson's Maternal Addiction Treatment Education and Research (MATER) Program provides comprehensive treatment services for substance-abusing pregnant and parenting women and their children in outpatient and residential settings. Our Family Center offers intensive outpatient treatment services while My Sister's Place provides long-term residential treatment.
Services include individual, group and family therapy; obstetrical care; and parent-child services. Facilities include on-site methadone maintenance treatment and inpatient stabilization for opioid-addicted patients. Pregnant women should be referred to the Program as early in the pregnancy as possible. Infants who exhibit withdrawal are treated as inpatients in the Newborn Nursery Service.
