Substance Use Plans of Safe Care
A Plan of Self Care (POSC) is designed to ensure the safety and well-being of an infant with prenatal substance exposure following their release from the care of a healthcare provider.
The plan should be initiated in advance of the infant’s birth by a designated community organization, such as a substance use disorder treatment provider or the healthcare provider at the birth hospital.
Plans of Safe Care Workshops
Along with Crouse Hospital, the Lerner Center holds virtual workshops for healthcare providers, social workers and case managers to guide them through developing a POSC and how to appropriately treat a patient's substance use disorder.
