Wow. So many of you ladies are absolutely disgusting. If you can't be helpful, f**k off. Drug addicts need help, not a lecture. She clearly wants to start a better life for her and her child. You can't just quit.

I don't know anything? The second I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant with my daughter at the age of 17, I quit my 4 year meth and cocaine.addiction. The same day. It sucked but I never went back and NEVER used methadone!

It could be good for her, She's willing to clean her self up for this child, It can be what makes her stop completely.
The baby does not have to be born "Messed up" because of early drug use.

Heroin is a completely different drug from those! Do not compare your being able to quit those to trying to quit heroin. There is a reason we have methadone and why we use it for people addicted to heroin. At least she is trying to do something about her addiction. If you know what it's like to be an addict shouldn't you be supporting her and trying to help her? Not bashing her?

of course you never used methadone, you were not addicted to opiates.



cocaine and meth a VASTLY different than opioids (methadone, heroin, oxycodone...). you cannot just stop "cold turkey" with opioids. that is a great way to kill yourself and fetus. her doctor is correct in telling her to keep using until she can set herself up on a methadone clinic.



babies are weaned from methadone in the hospital after birth. some take longer than others. they are given phenobarbitol and a tinture of morphine and slowly weaned off the methadone. this is perfectly safe, albiet sometimes long (several weeks) process.



please dont come in here acting like you know everything, and spewing hatred towards the OP. she's newly pregnant, scared, and wants to change her life for her baby.

A doctor would tell someone to keep using heroin during pregnancy? :shock:



I have no clue about drugs or addictions honestly. I really hope you can overcome it for the sake of your baby.
