Massachusetts Women & Family Referral Center

Massachusetts Women & Family Referral Center

If you are a pregnant or parenting person struggling with substance use, or are working with one, please connect with the statewide Women & Family Referral Center (WFRC).

Pregnant people have priority access to all addiction treatment services in Massachusetts. Recovery is possible, and pregnancy and postpartum is a time of opportunity and having a plan of safe care for your child's birth can help you organize your resources.

All who contact WFRC are warmly welcomed, and our team works with Individuals to decide the appropriate level of care needed and to gather a full understanding of their current needs and preferences.

We work closely to connect individuals with services, providing interim phone counseling and offering the many resources that are available for pregnant and postpartum people in the state. This includes supportive housing placement, early Intervention services for young children, peer recovery support and addiction recovery services, such as the Journey Recovery Project.

What happens when I connect with the Women & Family Referral Center?

All individuals who contact the Women and Families Referral Center are warmly welcomed. Our staff works WITH individuals and/or those who care for them by talking through a series of questions to fully as possible understand their current needs and preferences, and then assess and discuss the appropriate level of care needed.

Through this discussion, we can begin to think about an individual's Plan of Safe Care  during their pregnancy or post-partum journeys. Depending on the specific needs of individuals and their families, this can include, but is not limited to, referrals for recovery support/SUD treatment housing placements for pregnant/parenting women including interim counseling, as well as educational and other behavioral health and family support services to meet the developmental needs of their infants.
