PATHways Program

Perinatal Assessment and Treatment Home (PATHways) This program is specially designed to bring multispecialty services to pregnant women who are seeking assistance for opioid use and other substances. Our goal is to provide an effective, multidisciplinary team to focus on each patient’s unique needs and circumstances. We provide group counseling, individual therapy, case management, peer support and consultation with Addiction Medicine, Neonatology, Maternal Fetal Medicine, Nursing, Social Work and Substance Abuse counseling to oversee complex circumstances in a non-judgmental, non-stigmatizing environment. Dr. Agatha Critchfield boarded in Maternal Fetal Medicine and Addiction Medicine is the Medical Director of the program.
