BBC News – Inquiry call after Caernarfon mother fed baby methadone

BBC News – Inquiry call after Caernarfon mother fed baby methadone.

This story reminds us of what can happen when we don’t offer stigma free, easily accessible drug treatment to heroin addicted mothers-to-be.

How different would this babie’s and her mothers life be, had she gotten into treatment WHILE SHE WAS PREGNANT–instead of desperately trying to treat her baby and herself by using black market methadone?

We can all say “well she should have known better” and “she should have loved her child enough to stop”….but things don’t work that way in the real world.  In the real world, addiction is too hard a beast to fight by yourself.
