Druglink article 1987 – The pregnant addict by Annas Dixon

Pregnancy in a drug taker puts at least three people at risk: the baby, the mother – and the social worker, at risk of personal distress and public infamy if leaving the child with the mother goes wrong; at risk of causing deep psychological damage by enforcing unnecessary separation. Annas Dixon discusses the issues. Includes information on detoxification during pregnancy and guidelines for working with drug using parents.
