While residential beds for clients children is not as common as other specialized types of drug treatment programs, 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 supplied beds for both mothers and their children. There is a substantial benefit 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 drug addiction treatment they need while remaining close with their children through the difficult process of substance abuse recovery. Many parents (mothers in particular) are afraid to admit that they need help with their substance abuse problemsfor fear that their children will be taken away. These programs help to reduce this fear while offering the care that both parent and child so desperately need.
