Although residential beds for clients children is not as common as other specialized types of addiction treatment centers, they do, in fact, exist if you are in need. Back in 2007, the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services documented that 515 (14%) of residential substance abuse treatment centers provided 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 provide residential beds for clients children. The parent is able to receive the addiction treatment they need while remaining involved with their children through the difficult process of substance abuse recovery. Many parents (mothers in particular) do not want to admit that they need help for their addiction problemsbecause they fear that their children will be taken away. These programs help to reduce this fear while providing the proper care that both mother and child so desperately need.
