New program, "Closer to Home," will allow pregnant women in buprenorphine treatment for opioid dependence to get treatment closer to home and deliver at Copley Hospital instead of being required to go to Burlington. This requires local physicians to prescribe buprenorphine to pregnant women. In creating the program, prescribing physicians have to decide policies around non-opioid substance use.
