Pregnancy can be an exciting time, but it can also leave you feeling anxious. When you add addiction to the picture, finding help becomes even more important. At Neuropsychiatric Addiction Clinic, we strive to provide a safe place where women can recover with compassion and support.
We offer a drug rehab program for pregnant women in a safe environment that is overseen by medical professionals. Our serene setting was created to help our residents feel centered and secure as they deal with their issues on the road to sobriety. Expectant mothers face additional challenges in rehab, so we want you to feel reassured before you take this life-changing step.
What to Expect From Rehab for Pregnant Mothers?
The dynamics of addiction recovery are difficult enough without the added stress of worrying about your unborn child. At our medical detox center, there’s never any judgment. Our sole purpose is to help you deal with your addiction and the underlying factors that led you to this place in your life. That means treating the whole person, mind, body, and spirit, not just the physical dependency.
Like all rehabilitation programs, drug rehab for pregnant mothers is designed to help you face the past and learn new tools and skills to cope better in the future. That includes identifying what triggers you to want to use, how you feel during those times, and how to deal with life without turning to drinking or using. Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is one of the tools that will help you make healthy decisions as a recovering addict and a new mom.
Our rehab for pregnant women offers many of the same features as our other treatment programs. You’ll receive medically supervised detox to help cleanse your body and deal with the physical aspects of drug or alcohol dependence. Then we’ll work on the emotional and mental health side of the equation. Your treatment program will include:
- Medical support
- Individual counseling
- Peer-to-peer counseling
- Group therapy sessions
- Case management
- Nutritional counseling
- Specialized educational groups
Since a multi-faceted approach to recovery offers the best chance of success, each of these aspects of our program fulfills a different need. Individual sessions with a trained therapist are designed to help you let go of past decisions and events in your life that contributed to your addiction. There may be past abuse, you may have some guilt. You may also be coping with undiagnosed or untreated mental health problems or family issues. Your private therapy is a chance to talk these things through in a safe space with a counselor who’s understanding and trained to help you work through your problems.
Peer and group counseling allows you to connect with others who have traveled down your path. They may seem like the same thing, but one focuses on helping you cope, the other helps you change. Every story is unique. However, you’ll find that parts of your story are mirrored in the history of other residents who are at various points on their journey toward sobriety.
It’s reassuring to know that you’re not alone, and that’s one thing that group sessions help to achieve. They also help to keep you honest. Others in your group will know when you’re lying to yourself or not taking responsibility. It’s not a judgment; they’ve just been there. Peer support groups are a chance for you to connect with others who are in your position to support and nurture each other. This is especially important during those times you’re really struggling on your path to wellness. We can also arrange family counseling to help you deal with issues in your relationships.
What Kinds of Addiction Treatment is Available for Pregnant Women?
Our facility has 24-hour medical support staff who are trained to handle any medical needs of our residents. Withdrawal symptoms can be especially difficult, both physically and emotionally.

During your stay at our facility, you’ll also enjoy healthy meals that are prepared by our chef. You’ll have access to a range of wellness services that are offered to help improve your state of mind while you’re going through treatment. Our clinic offers semi-private rooms, a secluded, upscale environment, and peaceful recreation areas for you to relax in and enjoy.
How Long Will I Need to Be in Rehab?
We offer intensive inpatient and long-term drug rehab for pregnant women to treat a range of addictions. Our programs are 30, 60, or 90 days, with additional support services once our residents leave the facility. Your length of treatment will depend on several factors, including:
- Your admissions evaluation
- Your progress during treatment
- The length and severity of your addiction
- Your physical and mental health
- The recommendation of your primary doctor and therapist
You won’t just be left to cope on your own after you leave our clinic, either. Depending on your circumstances, you have the option of moving into a sober living facility or going back home. You’ll also continue to attend therapy sessions and have access to continued medical support if needed.
One thing you won’t have to be concerned about is cost. Neuropsychiatric Addiction Clinic accepts most major medical insurance plans. If you don’t see yours on this list, contact us to talk to an admissions counselor. We’re available 24/7.
