According to the 2020 South Carolina County-Level Profiles on Substance Use-Related Indicators, from 2018 to 2019, hospitalizations involving primary or secondary other stimulants (e.g. methamphetamines) increased by 16.4% (8,256 to 9,606). Additionally, hospitalizations involving primary or secondary cannabis use in South Carolina increased by 10.3% (10,561 to 11,645). At the end of this session, clinical providers should have a better understanding of how to provide safe and thoughtful care to women with substance use.

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review the health burdens experienced by individuals with substance use disorders.
  • Discuss the sexual and reproductive health implications of substance use disorders.
  • Review key clinical recommendations related to providing family planning services to those with SUD.
  • Discuss specific techniques providers can leverage to help screen and treat those with SUD.
