Detoxing Pregnant from Opiates

Detoxing Pregnant…Safe?

heroin and opiate detox

Detoxing from opiates should not be in a cold environment or judgment. Today there is science and care.

There’s a baby born addicted to opiates every 25 minutes. A segment that few would like to attend or care for. The negativity and anger pointed toward the mother’s lack of compassion and understanding of the disease of addiction. The question is not so much about morals but about the life coming. This is the one deserving attention.

“Medically assisted treatment (MAT) weans those addicted to opioids to use other medications such as buprenorphine or methadone, along with behavioral therapy. Although not without risk to the mother, or the unborn baby, who can eventually be born with NAS, MAT has been associated with improved prenatal care, lower rates of complications during heroin addiction pregnancy, and higher rates of compliance to treatment. Unlike MAT, medically supervised withdrawal is tapering off an opioid without medication, but still coupled with the other support services.”

To those who care for the unwanted, and the afflicted, we at La Jolla Recovery say there is a solution, and there is care. Thank you to those who use research and science to understand the right processes for better detoxing programs for the right journey into detoxing from alcohol and drugs.
