Substance abuse is harmful on many different levels, more so when you are pregnant. Pregnant women can pass on harmful toxins and wastes collected from prolonged use of drugs or other substances to the unborn baby. Not only that, continued use of drugs during pregnancy can lead to complications and birth defects in the child. So, if you are going to be a mother and want to give birth to a normal child, you should start drug treatment as early as possible.

Drug abuse is a severe problem in India. Statistics show that more than 2.6 crore Indians have used opioids or are still using them, and the number is still increasing. Continued use of drugs can not only have a serious impact on the mother but on the child as well. So, if you do not want your child to have a bleak future, it’s high time that you abstain from drug abuse.
