Prescription drug use during pregnancy has more than tripled over the last ten years. 13, 500 American babies are born addicted to opioids each year.
Phoenix House is committed to protecting and supporting individuals, families, and communities affected by substance abuse and dependency. Phoenix House offers comprehensive and professional services for pregnant women and mothers and their young children in residential settings. They offer a treatment regimen of individual, group, and family counseling sessions that are sensitive to the special needs of women who have experience past traumas.
They also provide evaluations, prenatal and postnatal care, well-baby check-ups, and immunizations from a pediatric nurse practitioner. They offer new mothers’ support groups, “Mommy and Me” classes, parent coaching, child development education, relapse prevention skills and recovery training. While their mothers are in treatment, children are cared for on-site in a nurturing environment.
