Addiction is Devastating For a New Born Baby
Why would you want a child to be born addicted ? Just because its mother is. If you can put the mother through treatment before the baby is born it will get properly detoxed. If the baby is born without being treated in the womb they have to go through horrible withdrawals possibly death. If we could educate the public and our doctors to these facts if would enhance the general health of both mother and child. If you ever have the misfortune of having to watch a child go through withdrawals you will understand.
Thank goodness there are people, treatment facilities and organizations that will help people to arrest there addiction. A lot of people have good success if they work at staying sober or straight. There is a lot of help if you just seek it out.
A lot of people become addicted on there own or with the help of “friends”. Ten percent of the people in the world were born to be an alcoholic. Ninety percent of the people who take hard drugs become addicted. Not very good odds to say the least. Most people do not know this or do not care.
Some doctors that specialize in the treatment of mind altering drugs and alcohol abuse, know through experience, that they can treat a pregnant woman for her addiction. When they do not Know how to treat a baby for addiction. This is a very bad situation that most people do not even think about. An addiction specialist will treat the pregnant woman every time to save her and the fetus. A regular doctor says “oh no, this type of treatment could hurt the fetus”. They are just ignorant to the facts of addiction and the treatment thereof.
The average doctor with all of there knowledge does not know much about addiction and less about the the treatment. Most doctors not realizing or meaning to have helped a lot of there patients become addicted. Doctors are taught to relieve pain therefore they will give the patient some medication. This is well and good until the patient decides, if a little is good a little more is better. First thing you know they have become addicted, they did not tell the doctor that they may have a few drinks to calm there nerves. Also they will go to another doctor and get another prescription and so forth.
There is a lot of knowledge to be learned as we go through life as long as we are not to bullheaded. Leadership skills training will enhance all of our lives. If we do not spend but about fifteen minutes a day on average on continuing education we are backing up. You should not just study your chosen field but open up to some general knowledge.
I just hope that one person will read this article and think about how wonderful it would be, if you would be responsible for helping to save a mother and child. Keep this in mind and if you see someone in trouble please help.
