Learn About Treatment

There are a range of treatment and support options available to you. Not all treatment requires you to stay at a facility. Our treatment approach considers all of your needs, medical or otherwise.

What to Expect

It can be scary thinking about seeking help for your addiction, especially if you are pregnant. What you need to know when seeking help is that your treatment is confidential. Voluntary substance use disorder (SUD) and medication assisted therapy for opioid use disorder (MAT) programs are a safe place for you to seek help. Your treatment provider will protect your privacy and not share information about your treatment without your consent  

If you are not already in the system, you cannot be reported to child protective services for voluntarily participating in treatment or leaving treatment. A treatment provider will only communicate with child protective services if your children are at risk of being abused or neglected, or if you already have a caseworker and have other children in the home.

If you are receiving inpatient, or residential treatment, there is a possibility that your children may be able to come with you. If you are in outpatient treatment and attending a group therapy program, you may be able to bring your children to the group or childcare may be available. Ask your treatment provider about child-care options.

Remember social services will only remove a child if they have a reason to believe there is risk of abuse or neglect. If you are being treated, you are showing that you are trying to make a better life for yourself and your child or children.

Questions Moms To Be Have

Information about your treatment is protected by law. Your treatment provider will protect your privacy and will not share any information regarding your treatment with anyone else without your consent.  

Slip ups and relapses are part of the journey to recovery. SUD providers know this and will not stop your treatment if you are sincerely seeking help. Your process may take several tries, and sometimes several different approaches. Providers are available to listen and provide unbiased support.
