Maternal Opioid Misuse (MOM) Grant Program
Elliot Health System is proud to partner with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to implement the MOM (Maternal Opioid Misuse) Model. The MOM Model is grant-funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services through 2024 and builds upon the Greater Manchester region's current opioid use prevention and treatment efforts for pregnant and postpartum individuals.
As the Care Delivery Partner working with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), The Elliot has partnered with many community organizations, including:
- Elliot Hospital
- Catholic Medical Center
- Amoskeag Health
- Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester
- Families in Transition
- Farnum Center
- The Doorway
- Department of Health and Human Services
- Department of Children, Youth and Family Services
The MOM program is available to people who are currently pregnant and up to two years postpartum, have opioid misuse disorder, and who are eligible for Medicaid. The program helps participants find various health and wellness services quickly and easily. By serving as an access point to these resources, the MOM program helps new and expecting parents and their babies have good health during pregnancy and beyond.
The services that we provide access to include:
- Medical, behavioral health, and substance use screening
- Care coordination and case management, including housing assistance, service connection and collaboration, and food assistance
