When a person is faced with addiction and pregnancy, everything seems complicated and impossible. Dependency or addiction means an individual is unable to stop using drugs or alcohol even if they want to do so because the substances have caused changes to their brain chemistry. Without the substance, individuals have extreme difficulty functioning properly and often experience extremely uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Many people recognize the risks to their child but lack the support to stop using. That’s where Oceanfront Recovery’s addiction treatment can provide help.
What Should You Do About Addiction and Pregnancy at the Same Time?
Being pregnant doesn’t have to stop the detox and treatment process. It may even make it easier to see the value of getting help now. A women’s rehab program can provide a safe and comfortable place for you to go through the addiction treatment program and meet your health needs. Ensuring you get the proper medical care while getting care for addiction is the most important factor to consider when choosing a place to get help.
What Addiction and Pregnancy Means for Your Future
No matter what your decisions are regarding your pregnancy, one of the most important decisions is change. Doing nothing only puts you further into a health crisis and leads to challenges for the unborn child. Are you ready to change? When you enter into addiction treatment, you may see several opportunities such as:
- A place to become physically healthy
- Support for addiction including help detoxing from use
- A safe, drug-free place to live while you are recovering
- Development of communication and life skills to enable better outcomes
- Support for mental health disorders, including past trauma
- Guidance in making life decisions for your future
Even if you’re unsure what steps you can take right now to get help, reaching out to our team is always an option. You don’t have to worry, be afraid, or feel like there’s no hope. We can offer a range of solutions to guide you and empower you to change.
Why a Women’s Rehab Can Be So Beneficial to Your Future
For those battling numerous concerns like this, a women’s rehab can provide the best atmosphere. In this type of therapy, several needs can be met for both your addiction and pregnancy.
For example, many women need help to safely stop using drugs without doing any harm to the child. Some women are dealing with trauma or health complications. Others have underlying mental health disorders that need treatment. Being in a women’s-only program allows you to be in a safe place to work on recovery. There’s no pressure to make decisions.
There are ample therapy options to guide you, too. That includes help with programs like cognitive-behavioral therapy and nutritional support. You may need family therapy programs to help manage turmoil and frustration and create a new path forward for you and your loved ones with both the addiction and the pregnancy.
More so, connecting with other women who face some of the same challenges as you can be restorative. It can provide you with some peace of mind to know that others understand what you’re facing. You may even develop new friendships and get the support you are not getting anywhere else.
