Substance‑using mothers encounter multiple vulnerabilities associated not only from their drug use but also from the various social factors that surround them. The absence of guidelines, responses, and social resources that currently define the situation hinders the implementation of comprehensive interventions to assist these women. This study aims to examine the professional practices within the Barcelona Harm Reduction centers that provide support to substance‑using mothers, taking into account gender, intersectionality, and a focus on childhood. Based on a qualitative approach, data were collected through fourteen semi‑structured interviews with professionals in the fields of childhood, substance abuse, and healthcare. Results indicated that the lack of tools, information, and knowledge prevents the provision of integrated interventions from a childhood perspective for women using drugs. To ensure comprehensive support, as well as, reducing anxiety and frustration, it is recommended to incorporate professionals with expertise in childhood rights into the harm reduction team, while also developing a specific strategy aligned with the suggestions put forth by harm reduction professionals themselves ​
