Pregnant Women with Addiction, The “SWADDLE” Outpatient Program
Sober Women Actively Dedicated and Determined to Live Exceptionally
The Alchemy Addiction Recovery SWADDLE (Sober Women Actively Dedicated and Determined to Live Exceptionally) Outpatient Program is designed for women who are pregnant with addiction through 1–year postpartum. Alchemy Recovery has provided this unique service since 2014 and treated hundreds of women and their babies. The program is a supportive, compassionate, and judgment–free that combines the benefits of our Intensive Outpatient Program and offers these special mothers to come together to learn from one another, support each other and grow in their recovery. To assist and guide these special women, we have an OB/GYN passionate to help them, an Addiction Psychiatrist trained to work with them, and nursing staff to aid in their treatment with medication for withdrawal management.
Alchemy Addiction Recovery is the only outpatient treatment facility, since 2014, that provides comprehensive addiction treatment for pregnant women in the Southeast Louisiana Region. We are acutely aware of the impact that substance abuse has on their close family relationships, and the potential problems for the unborn child. At Alchemy, we are eager to embrace pregnant women seeking help. We know how important it is to help these women who are treated at times as if they have “The Plague of Addiction“. They find it very difficult to ask anyone or anywhere for help. These pregnant women are full of shame and guilt, resisting to ask for help. The fear the judgement and scorn from people that don‘t understand addiction stops them from reaching out for help. This is why Alchemy Recovery is passionate to work hard for their recovery. This is what we do know: their recovery will impact at least 3 generations of their family and help end the cycle of addiction. This is our mission at Alchemy Addiction Recovery to help these Pregnant Women with Addiction.
We assist women in having a healthy pregnancy and provide support postpartum for long-term abstinence and recovery maintenance. Participation in this program not only helps the mother but improves the outcomes for her child. We combine multiple treatment components including medication-assisted treatment, coordinated care with the OB/GYN, counseling with professionally licensed therapist, Addiction Psychiatrist’s, nurses and supportive women peers in recovery.
