The goal of SOFAR (Supporting Our Families through Addiction and Recovery) is to create a medical home in the pediatric primary care clinic for parents in recovery and their children. SOFAR provides ongoing support for families to enhance child development as well as ongoing support for recovery, with access to specialty care and social services.

SOFAR works to coordinate infants’ primary care visits with any additional care that parents and babies need, to minimize the number of visits required.

Who We Are

SOFAR is a multidisciplinary team of physicians, social workers, patient navigators, nurse practitioners, and coordinators who provide high-quality, coordinated medical and psychosocial care for families to maximize their ability to successfully navigate parenting and substance use recovery. SOFAR expands on the multidisciplinary prenatal care provided by Project RESPECT for pregnant women with opioid use disorder.


For infants:

  • Primary care
  • Pediatric infectious disease care
  • Developmental assessment and links to early intervention services
  • Social work support (DCF follow up, links to other social resources)

For mothers:

  • Care coordination through Grayken Center for Addiction
  • Linkage to outside resources and social services
  • Peer support
