Addressing Opioid Use in Pregnancy: Conversations and Next Steps in Blackfeet
Along with the rest of the United States, the Blackfeet Tribe has experienced an alarming rise in the use of opioids. To address the issue of opioid use in pregnancy, the Blackfeet Tribe recently gathered Tribal leaders, community members, and public health experts from across the country to explore how they can work together to best support good health in mothers and babies.
The Rocky Mountain Tribal Epidemiology Center, with consultation from Boston University and in partnership with Montana Healthcare Foundation, coordinated with Blackfeet Tribal leaders to arrange the conference. Topics included strategies that the Blackfeet community is taking to destigmatize drug use, ideas for outpatient treatment of opioid use from the Lummi Tribe of Washington and Project RESPECT of Boston Medical Center, and integrating Blackfeet cultural healing practices into the care approach.
