Although residential beds for clients children is not as prevalent as other specialized types of drug treatment programs, they are possible to find 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 programs offered beds for both mothers and their children. There is a substantial advantage to both the mother and child who are able to attend recovery programs that offer residential beds for clients children. The parent is able to receive the rehabilitation they need while remaining involved with their children through the challenging process of substance abuse recovery. Many parents (mothers in particular) are afraid to admit that they need help for their substance abuse problemsbecause they fear that their children will be taken away. These programs help to alleviate this fear while supplying the care that both mother and child so desperately need.
