Our Perinatal Behavioral Health Program includes the SHORE Program, providing care for pregnant and postpartum women with substance use disorders (SUD). You must be at least 18 years old to participate in our SUD treatment program.

The SHORE Program provides in-office and virtual care for pregnant and postpartum women (up to 2 years) with substance use disorders, alcohol use disorder, and/or mental health concerns in a stigma-free environment. 

Our goal is to help you make the best choices for you and your baby by providing the most up-to-date information about taking medication during pregnancy and/or breastfeeding. Using a holistic approach,  we will support you and your family by coordinating care between our behavioral health services and your provider. 

The perinatal behavioral health program is part of the Grayken Center for Treatment at South Shore Health. We see patients from Monday-Friday from 7:30 AM-4 PM. To schedule an appointment, please call 781-624-5065.
