At 7 months pregnant I relapsed on oxycodone and xanax. I took them for a total of 9 days and when I stopped I started to go thru withdrawal. I called my doctor and broke down begging her for help because I didnt want to dig myself into a deeper hole and I love my baby. She drug tested me and of course I showed positive for both substances just like I told her I would. She told me there wasn't anything she could do for me and handed me a pamphlet for rehab. she also stated that she was documenting this In my chart and dcf (child protective services) will be notified. I took it upon myself to get hooked up with a methadone maintenance program where they do one on one counseling once a week and random drug screens. I've kept myself at a very low dose and I'm also inquiring about parenting classes. My significant other is drug and alcohol free and owns our home and works a steady job. I'm due for c-section on July 13th and I've remained clean from everything but the methadone obviously. my biggest fear is dcf taking my baby away for what has happened. I'm desperate for any feedback or experience that someone has in a similar situation. Let me also add that baby and I are clean now and will be at time of birth.
