If you or a loved one is facing the challenges of opioid use disorder while pregnant, the maternal fetal medicine doctors at Riley at IU Health can help you. We provide compassionate care, helping you and your child throughout pregnancy and beyond.
Our expert Maternal-Fetal medicine specialists partner with you to provide personalized support and attention. We are here to help you have a healthier pregnancy, reducing risks of complications for you and your baby.
To begin care, you will need to stay in the hospital to receive subutex treatment. Subutex is a medicine that can help you begin to overcome addiction. During initiation, patients will stay in the hospital until a stable dose of Subutex is achieved. We provide Subutex management on an outpatient basis, during pregnancy and up to 8-weeks postpartum.

We offer comprehensive care to prevent, identify, and treat any pregnancy complications you or your baby may experience. As your partner for a healthier pregnancy, we will answer all your questions and concerns.
