USA (PRWEB) April 06, 2015
Florida’s infants born with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) are double the nation’s average, according to an article published by USA Today on April 5th. Newborns addicted to painkillers are all too common an occurrence in Florida, and seem to undermine the efforts state officials have expended battling pill mills around the state. Between 2013 and 2014 the rate for babies born with NAS increased 24%. Babies suffering from NAS must be hospitalized, and suffer from body convulsions, fever, difficulty feeding, insomnia, and seizures. Most mothers battling drug or alcohol addiction turn to methadone in an attempt to overcome their addictions, but methadone has been proven to cause NAS in newborns. Harbor Village Detox is an inpatient medical detox facility dedicated to rehabilitating victims suffering from untreated drug and alcohol substance use disorders. The inpatient medical detox center is extending its addiction treatment services to cater to pregnant women seeking help for drug and alcohol addiction, while safeguarding newborns from incurring the worst of NAS.
In light of the increase of newborns born with addiction, Harbor Village Detox is taking new initiative to invite pregnant women from all over the state, and country, to safely pursue detoxification and successful drug and alcohol rehabilitation before the birth of their children. NAS forces newborns to stay in hospitals for an extended period of time, which is often costly. The drug and alcohol addiction treatment center in Florida offers pregnant mothers with the opportunity to kick addiction and prevent the debilitating NAS sickness ascribed to drug use while pregnant.
Because mothers who attempt to quit cold turkey on their own, without the help of medical drug and alcohol treatment, are at greater risk of miscarrying, according to USA Today, Harbor Village Detox is offering extra incentives to safely guide pregnant women from the throes of addiction.
Harbor Village Detox’s inpatient medical detox facility is located in South Florida, and offers the nation the pinnacle of drug and alcohol addiction treatment services. Their instrumental directors believe no victims suffering from drug or alcohol use disorders should suffer from addiction, despite their socioeconomic backgrounds. They offer 24/7 medical and psychiatric services, weekly events, group therapy, pharmacological therapy, private bedrooms, and full Netflix and Xbox access.
