Addiction Treatment for Pregnant Women in Florida
One of the most delicate and vital womens' treatment program, My Florida Center for Recovery specializes in addiction treatment for pregnant women. This service therefore includes prenatal and post partum services, as well as transportation to the necessary service provider. Our program also helps cooperation with the Florida Department of Children and Families, offering therapies that try to reconcile the difficulty of experiencing chemical dependence and motherhood at the same time. Our aftercare services in these cases also include referrals to community and outreach programs, in addition to support groups and government services for families experiencing domestic problems.
Addiction treatment for pregnant women is incredibly important because unlike most other patients, there is more than one life at stake. Our program not only makes a healthy pregnancy possible, but does its best to create healthy maternal relationships. The aim is to replace the state of poor mental health and misplaced priorities with responsible motherhood.

Women and Substance Abuse
Women are already at a disadvantage in many situations in America, and seeking addiction treatment is no different. They often experience less income and financial support to afford treatment, and are more likely than men to be in a codependent or abusive relationship with someone who drives their drug habit. Female addicts are also far more likely to be physically or sexually exploited than men, and tend to have ongoing mental health problems because of it. Perhaps the most challenging aspect of coping with addiction as a woman is the difficulty of resolving a substance abuse problem without jeopardizing their family connection. Many women would much rather hide their drug problems from their families, friends, doctors, and social workers, rather than seek help from them; many fear their children will be taken from them. Inevitably this belief magnifies chronic addictions and domestic disturbances, creating even greater suffering.
Understanding differences in gender when it comes to substance abuse is very difficult. Alcoholism is often found more commonly in men as well as other addictive drugs, but studies have also shown that women are more likely to abuse prescription drugs. Women have also been found to be more susceptible to addiction in regards to some drugs, though less so with others. Menstrual cycles have also been known to effect narcotic use and the way drugs effect women's bodies. Above all, drug use has serious long-term effects on reproductive health and fetal development, leading to thousands of births every year effected by alcohol, prescription drug, and even cigarette use.
What is known is that gender-specific programs show positive results. Women react favorably to programs that cater to their particulary needs, applying techniques that take into account their physical and psychological situation. Psychological counseling, cognitive and behavioral assessments, training in coping skills and relapse prevention, and mental health rehab are all common aspects of what addiction treatment for women encompasses. Women-only programming, including childcare, sexual health, family and domestic relationships, and mental health activities all are offered in order to help rehabilitate patients.
Please call and speak to one of our licensed therapists regarding specifics of our treatment programs, designed specifically for women struggling with substance abuse.
