Pregnancy and Drug Addiction. 2 The subject that I want to explore is pregnancy and drug addiction. Addiction of any substance is to be taken seriously. Unfortunately, when society think of substance addiction, young and trouble adults are the ones who come to mind. Pregnant women are often an afterthought. However, it is a reality that we can not and should not ignore. Pregnancy and drug addiction is such a taboo subject, an addicted mother is more likely to have an abortion for several reasons. Whether it is because she is unaware of her choices in keeping her pregnancy and getting help or made to be ashamed of her predicament. Drug addiction on its own is quite dangerous, adding a fetus to the equation could be even worse. This paper would address the different choices a woman may have if she is addicted and discover that she may be carrying a child. It will also discuss how mother and fetus will be affected and what to expect once the baby is born. Last but not least different treatments would also be a topic of discussion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
