Risks Of Substance Abuse For Pregnant Women

Alcohol and drug abuse are always risky, but when a pregnant woman is the one using drugs or alcohol, the unborn child is also at risk.

Risks of drug and alcohol use during pregnancy include:

  • stillbirth
  • birth defects
  • low birth weight
  • premature birth
  • sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
  • neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS)
  • fetal alcohol spectrum disorders

The consequences for drug and alcohol abuse during pregnancy are potentially quite serious for the unborn child, but the consequences can be very serious for the pregnant woman as well.

For these reasons, timely and proper treatment is crucial to help pregnant women enter addiction recovery and avoid further complications or negative effects.

Is Substance Abuse Treatment For Pregnant Women Safe?

Drug addiction treatment for pregnant women can be a complicated process because there are really two people being treated at once — both the pregnant woman and her unborn child.

It is generally accepted that it is better for the pregnant woman to progress through treatment than to continue using drugs or alcohol, despite any risks involved.

However, drug addiction treatment will vary depending on the drugs involved, severity of use, whether the woman has any co-occurring disorders, and other factors.

Medication-assisted treatment for pregnant women is found to be safe at all levels of pregnancy, with some possible side effects.

Pregnant Women And Opioid Addiction Treatment

Opioids are one of the most commonly abused drugs today and can be found either illegally on the streets or legally by prescription for any number of pain-related issues. Withdrawal symptoms are known to be very uncomfortable.

Quitting an opiate without medical supervision usually requires the use of medications such as methadone or buprenorphine to help in the opioid withdrawal process.

Pregnant women with opioid use disorders do have treatment options that are considered safe for them and the unborn child. Check with your physician before starting any treatment for an opioid addiction.
