Heroin use while pregnant Child services questions

Discussion in 'Heroin' started by Babymamadrama92, Mar 17, 2016.

  1. I'm 7 months !!! I just can't seem to stop using heroin
    I'm even on methadone and still using heroin!
    This is my first baby and I don't want child services to take her!!
    What can I do ??
    I only have 2 months left until shes born is it already too late? Are they going to take her?
    And what happens if they do take her? How long will it take to get her back and what kind of things to they make u do usually will they let her father who doesn't do any drugs keep her until I can get her back?

    I need you to read this and take what I'm saying to heart. I'm studying for my bachelors in social work, I volunteer as a special victims advocate for CASA.


    I don't know what state you live in, if you would like state specific information please feel free to message me. I'll even give you my phone number and we can talk or text. You are important and the baby growing inside your body right now is important. I can help you keep her.

    But, if you don't feel comfortable doing that, I can give you some general information.

    First of all, get into rehab. If you have Medicaid... they will pay for it. It is very important! You have to do this if you want to keep your daughter.

    Every time you use you're putting your daughter's life in serious danger. Please, please, please get into rehab, NOW! Your daughter's life depends on it. If your daughter is born addicted to herion, the withdrawals could kill her... especially, if she's born early. You're not the only one addicted, your daughter is too and it's all she's ever known.

    Please message me... let's talk. I can help you.

    Just to answer your questions, if you've been seeing a doctor regularly and your pee tests have come up positive multiple times, there is a 99% chance that they will take the baby. You will have the chance to get it back, but you need to get clean first.

    I wish you the best in making the right decision. I trust you will try to get help now so that you can have the most wonderful time with your baby in the future. Trust me, it is easier to bond with a living being than with substances.

    I wish you safe delivery and recovery at rehab.

    Please check yourself into rehab. You'll lose your baby otherwise—to CPS or to heroin, whichever one comes first. Hopefully CPS.

    Keeping you and your baby in my thoughts.
