teen alcohol treatment

it must be better if allowed treatment as an alternative to prosecution. Women can and do recover from addiction, and go on to live productive lives and raise healthy children. Women who go to prison and do not get adequate treatment to address the issues underlying their drug use will use again, they will commit crimes to support their drug use, and they will end up back in prison. thanks for the post.

The mother was in jail when she gave birth to isreal and now she lives in a drug rehab or possibly a half way house. I'm not sure on that detail. But hannah you are right, I'm not sure of any place that wouldn't understand you needing to take off work for this. There is consensus in the medical community that addiction is a public health issue and that treating drug use during pregnancy as a crime undermines the health of both women and children.
