Abstract

Opioid use disorder presents an increased risk of complications in pregnancy, particularly when untreated. To optimize outcomes, medication-assisted treatment using methadone or buprenorphine as a part of a comprehensive care model is recommended. Neonatal abstinence syndrome and poor fetal growth remain significant complications of this disorder despite maternal treatment.
