Maine Mothers Network
Case Management for Pregnant and Parenting Women using Substances Program
The Maine Mothers Network is a program offered by agencies across the state and provides pregnant and parenting women across with support and resources to help build a substance-free future for their children.Women who are pregnant or have children up to 5 years old are eligible for the program.
- Trauma Screening: Screening for adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). This screening allows C&C case managers to identify unresolved traumatic events that create stressors leading to high-risk behaviors. After identifying trauma clients will begin the process of moving women to increased health and wellness by disrupting the cycle of substance use. This in turn will promote positive attachment with the infant/toddler and support effective parenting.
- Coordination and Advocacy: A case manager will help identify other needs and assist the mother with connecting to other resources in the community.
- Parenting Groups: The Nurturing Parents program will be offered to participants in this program.
- Treatment Groups: Parenting and treatment groups may be established across the state by using technology. Participants will have the opportunity to receive group treatment, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) skill building, Trauma Recovery and Empowerment, and Seeking Safety.
