While residential beds for clients children is not as common as other specialized types of drug or alcohol treatment centers, they are possible to find if you are in need. Back in 2007, the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services reported that 515 (14%) of residential substance abuse treatment centers supplied beds for both mothers and their children. There is a substantial advantage to both the mother and child who are able to attend programs that offer residential beds for clients children. The mother is able to receive the drug addiction treatment they need while remaining close with their children through the treatment process of substance abuse recovery. Many parents (mothers in particular) are afraid to admit that they need help for their substance abuse problemsfor fear that their children will be taken away. These programs help to reduce this fear while supplying the proper care that both parent and child so desperately need.
