Digital interventions are increasingly being used to support self-monitoring, self-management, and treatment adherence for individuals with substance use disorders (SUD) to promote long-term recovery outcomes. However, very little is known about the types of digital technology and their preliminary effects on supporting pregnant and parenting women with SUD. The purpose of this scoping review is to explore how digital technology has been used to provide resource support in parenting and recovery for pregnant and parenting women in recovery from substance use disorders. Research, policy and practice considerations regarding the feasibility of using mobile technology as a means of providing accessible maternal resources to support parenting, self-care, and recovery from addictive substances for pregnant and parenting women will be discussed.
Dr Phyllis Raynor, PhD, PMHNP-BC, CARN-AP, APRN, FIAAN
University of South Carolina, USAI am a doctoral-prepared psychiatric advanced nurse practitioner and Certified Advanced Practice Addictions Nurse. My certification as both a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and Addictions advanced practice nurse allow me to treat common mental health conditions and substance use disorders across the lifespan by providing evidence-based pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical interventions. In addition, I have been a registered nurse for over 26 years, and I have volunteered as a recovery support advocate and nurse educator for 13 years in a faith-based residential program working directly with various community partners and recently incarcerated adults (mostly parents) affected by substance use. My community-based participatory research is focused on the use of digital technology to support parenting and recovery outcomes of mothers and fathers in recovery from addictive substances. Ultimately, improvements in the health of parents and families come from long-term recovery from mental health and substance use.
