The Naples, Fla.-based nonprofit addiction and mental health facility David Lawrence Center has announced enhanced state-funded service opportunities for pregnant and postpartum women available through its substance use service continuum called Crossroads.

Women can receive the services at minimal or no upfront cost depending on eligibility, according to a news release from David Lawrence Center. Services are available for up to a year following delivery of the child.

Crossroads includes detoxification, residential and intensive outpatient services. Some of the supports offered through the continuum include physical health assessment, nutrition services, parenting education, and psychiatric services by a board-certified addictionologist.

“Our holistic approach assists participants in having positive birth outcomes and meeting their individualized treatment goals for living a drug-free lifestyle and providing a drug-free environment for their children,” said Crossroads program director Mary Ann Guerra.
