Drug abuse in pregna: There is a couple of good ways to treat drug abuse in pregnancy. If opiates, maintain on Methadone or subutex. If alcohol/ benzos, detox. Provide effective relapse prevention counseling for these and all other cocaine/crack, lsd, etc.

Important: Opiod detox is associated with miscarriage when done during the first trimester and premature delivery in the third.
