CAPP banner

The UAB Comprehensive Addiction in Pregnancy Program (CAPP) was established by the UAB division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine in 2017 with a grant from the University of Alabama Health Services Foundation General Endowment Fund. CAPP provides an environment in which women suffering substance use disorders during pregnancy and postpartum can experience recovery through comprehensive, peer supported, multi-disciplinary care. CAPP’s group prenatal care area provides a full complement of obstetric addiction therapy including opioid replacement therapy, sub specialty pediatric follow up, care coordination, social services, peer recovery support, and in-home parenting education.
