Abstract

Although the treatment of opioid dependence during pregnancy has received considerable attention over the past 40 years, most approaches have been based on retrospective, observational and/or clinical studies rather than well controlled clinical trials. An exciting new period appears to be emerging in which rigorous empirical data will provide recommendations for optimal treatment approaches for both the opioid dependent pregnant woman and her child.
