Pregnant Women and the Fight Against Addiction

Posted By Therapeutic Solutions PC || 21-Feb-2017

At Therapeutic Solutions PC, we understand that many pregnant women are currently dealing with addiction in many forms. We know that kicking an addiction is one thing, but it becomes necessary when one is carrying life inside of them.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) found the following statistics for women between the ages of 15 and 44:

  • 11.6% drank alcohol while pregnant
  • 17.3% consumed tobacco while pregnant
  • 4.3% used illicit or illegal substances while pregnant

Unfortunately, we are also aware that many women do not always seek the medical care or treatment for their addiction. We hope that our program at Therapeutic Solutions PC can touch many, and bring about a positive change in others’ lives. Our Chico behavioral health center can offer a helping hand to many women who need treatment for their addictions.

What’s the First Step?

The first step is to detox carefully from the drug or alcohol, which must be done carefully and while under a doctor’s supervision. This is only for the mother and the child’s well-being. If you have any questions about our program, and what types of benefits that you can get from our substance abuse treatment options, you can read about our Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program here.

This program includes the following:

  • Introduction to recovery
  • Medication support for relapse prevention
  • Outpatient detoxification services
  • Individualized treatment planning
  • Individual and group therapy

Some mothers might feel more comfortable in a group setting, as they will be able to talk and interact with others who are going through the same emotions and stresses. We also understand that other mothers prefer to retain their privacy, such as teen mothers. The primary focus of our Chico substance abuse counselors to help you get set on the road towards recovery.
