Pregnant drug users are the focus of this new study that argues that women who abuse substances should not be treated differently during their pregnancies but should instead be treated the same way as women who have medical problems with obstetric consequences. The social issues that produce drug abuse during pregnancy are discussed, and valuable information about top practices and policies for caring for maternal drug users is provided.
