July 30, 2021 -- Reid Health and Meridian Health Services have joined together to launch a maternal treatment program in Richmond called The Nest.
Substance use disorders, drug overdose deaths, and neonatal abstinence syndrome continue to be a significant problem in Wayne County. From January to August 2019, Reid had 543 deliveries and of those, 170 had a positive drug screen at the time of delivery.
The Nest aims to address those issues through integrated mental health, addictions, and medical services for pregnant women and those who have recently given birth.
"The program provides a welcoming and supportive environment where women can go without feeling judged or overlooked," said Erika Brandenstein, M.D., Reid OB/GYN and Medical Director for The Nest.
