Freedom Healthcare Services treats pregnant patients who have an opioid addiction. Initially, pregnant patients who contact FHS are advised that methadone maintenance treatment is the FDA approved form of treatment for an opiate addicted pregnant woman.
Our second option for a pregnant patient is Subutex treatment. This form of treatment allows the patient to have the flexibility of a take home prescription and helps stabilize her craving for opiates. FHS provides each pregnant patient on Subutex with individualized psychotherapy services and coordinates her treatment during pregnancy.
Freedom Healthcare Services ensures that each female patient is fully informed of the risk to her and her unborn child from continued use of illicit drugs. FHS educates patients on potential risks from use or withdrawal from a narcotic drug which is administered and or dispensed as part of their comprehensive maintenance treatment or detoxification treatment.
