Service Programs

The Maryland Department of Human Services, Social Services Administration (DHS/SSA) recognizes that a successful intervention must involve a collaborative approach that embraces the participation of various community service and health care providers,  home visiting programs, substance use treatment providers, and State agencies to promote positive outcomes for substance exposed newborns, their parents, and family members impacted by substance use. Across the State, addressing parental substance use is a priority in the development of services. LDSSs are implementing proven and promising services to address parental substance use, ensure the safety of newborns, and make sure families stay together to promote well-being.
