Many women with children would like help with alcohol dependence
or drug addiction
. But they postpone alcohol and drug treatment
because they don’t want to leave their children. They may not be aware that some facilities offer quality treatment along with child care.
It can happen to even the most dedicated mothers with young children. Alcoholism and drug addiction do not offer a break so women can be responsible mothers. Whether they continue a habit they started before pregnancy or become caught up in prescription drug addiction
after the birth, the results are the same.
When loved ones suggest getting help, these mothers generally argue that their first priority is the children. The truth, as everyone else knows, is that the children are the second priority. And as alcohol dependence and drug addiction
gets worse, the children become more and more neglected. So treatment needs to be sought before child neglect begins.
Even when family members offer to care for the children during treatment, many women will feel uncomfortable being separated from them. Indeed, it could be a distraction for these mothers to be away from their children, limiting the effectiveness of treatment. For this reason, and others that are valid, alcohol and drug treatment that includes child care is very beneficial.
