The demand for drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities for pregnant and postpartum women is very high, with particular regards to opioid dependent pregnant and postpartum women because cases of neonatal abstinence syndrome have increased from 7 cases per 1,000 admissions to neonatal intensive care units in 2004 to 27 cases per 1,000 admissions in 2013. Treatment centers available to pregnant and postpartum women in Anatone provide wide range of services, non-punitive in nature, to make getting clean from drugs and alcohol a reality, allow opioid addicted mothers transition into a drug free and healthy pregnancy with non-addicted infants, and receive the treatment they need to stay abstinent while postpartum.
States that offer pregnant and postpartum mothers with treatment services alternatively to legal penalties, including revocation of their parental rights, have found that these types of services support the idea of maintaining the family together and keeping the mother's abstinence in place so that this positively enforces the well-being of the infants and other children involved. Services delivered at such programs may include individual, group, and family counseling as well as prenatal and postpartum care. Some treatment programs may even offer training in parenting and include trauma-specific services to address any abusive relationships which bring on their drug or alcohol abuse as well as emotional and sexual abuse for all family members.
Many women in this situation often require extensive outpatient treatment services, but face many challenges to their sobriety due to the difficult nature of being a single parent or sole caregiver. drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers for pregnant and postpartum women often provide inpatient and residential care with beds for clients children, and aftercare services to sober living facilities with ongoing outpatient treatment services available to them including healthcare services.
