Any female that is pregnant is consistently enduring significant physiological changes, which can be incredibly overwhelming, that can last throughout its duration and long after. One of the most difficult aspects of pregnancy is that every single one of the mother’s actions can significantly influence the fetus’s growth, development, and health. Every day and week in gestation significant growth and physical developments occur. Depending on the woman, pregnancy can be a dangerous and complicated medical condition. There are many factors that contribute to a woman’s ability or inability to successfully conceive, carry, and deliver a baby. While there are natural complications that can arise during pregnancy, the longer a pregnant woman abuses drugs and/ or alcohol, the more she increases her and her fetus’s risk for developing complications. Everyone is different and will have unique needs and preferences when it comes to recovering from substance abuse and/ or addiction. Some individuals may elect to return home immediately after the completion of a substance abuse and/ or addiction treatment program, while others may choose to move into a sober living home. 

Sober Livings For Pregnant Women

Sober living facilities are a residential, transitional living option available to individuals that have successfully completed a formal substance abuse and/ or addiction treatment program. Sober living homes offer newly sober individuals a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment, that provide supportive and structured living conditions, prior to fully reintegrating into society and returning home. It serves as a transitional home where individuals can continue to practice prioritizing sobriety and implementing the lessons learned during treatment, without the presence of some of the triggers and distractions that can arise in mainstream society. Much like the wide array of substance abuse and/ or addiction treatment programs currently available, there are a variety of specialized sober living facilities available. Although not all sober living homes can accommodate pregnant women, there are some sober living homes that allow and are equipped to house pregnant women. Pregnancy does not have to interfere with one’s sobriety.  

A woman in recovery does not have to feel encumbered by her pregnancy as there are myriad options available that can provide ample support in helping one maintain sobriety.
