Children's Mercy Hospital

Program Summary: The goal of the TIES program is to identify and support pregnant and postpartum women and their families affected by substance abuse in order to reduce drug use, promote healthier families, increase family stability through education and employment, and build on family resources.

This crucial period of pregnancy and childbirth presents a valuable window of opportunity to enhance motivation and encourage women to consider substance abuse treatment.  All family members, as identified by the pregnant or postpartum woman, will be served. Referrals will be accepted up to six months postpartum. Families of women 18 and older will be eligible for participation.
