We are here to help you and your family.
Addiction & Pregnancy
Pregnancy should be an exciting and empowering time in a woman’s life. Unfortunately, addiction and mental health problems can compromise a woman’s safety and well-being. There’s hope for recovery, though. Help is available for pregnant women who are suffering from addiction.

Addiction is a progressive, chronic disease characterized by compulsive behavior, harmful side effects and relapse. Like other diseases, addiction presents serious risks for pregnant women and their babies.

Drug Addiction is one of the most dangerous types of addiction. Co-occurring mental health disorders, which commonly accompany addiction, also present unique health care challenges.

Every substance a woman consumes while pregnant can be transferred to her baby. Alcohol, tobacco and other drugs can pass through the placenta — the organ that provides nutrition and oxygen to the baby — and cause serious problems.

Thus, women who are pregnant or who are planning to become pregnant should avoid substances of abuse, and talk to their health care provider about a healthy diet and lifestyle. Those who are unable to quit using alcohol or other drugs should seek treatment immediately.
Living With an Addict
Addiction affects families in a variety of ways. The impact is different for each family and often depends on the addict. It’s important for a pregnant woman to put her safety and her child’s safety first.
Family members should encourage their loved ones to seek help, but a person’s decision to seek treatment may be affected by a family member’s attitude toward addiction.
