    Keywords: barriers, pregnancy, substance abuse treatment Some women experience substance use and addiction problems during pregnancy. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (Gordek & Folsom, ), 5% of pregnant women between the ages of 15 and 44 were using illicit drugs, with marijuana being the most common.   A large number of women who use alcohol or drugs during pregnancy are poly-substance abusers. Maternal substance abuse is closely linked to child development. Many different physical, behavioral, developmental, cognitive, social, academic, and vocational problems are noted in the children of women who abuse drugs and alcohol while pregnant.

    The contributions of the multiple disciplines which the authors represent emphasize the need for a multifactorial approach to the problems of drug use and abuse during pregnancy. It is hoped that through this type of approach a better future for substance-exposed infants, innocent bystanders in the process of addiction, can be assured.   Using drugs or drinking alcohol while pregnant can create a number of health issues for both mother and child. An increased risk of stillbirth and miscarriage serve as two of the more stark examples of the potential outcomes faced by pregnant women already struggling with debilitating substance abuse. 1 Despite the negative consequences, many continue to use substances regardless.

    "Since there were not, and still are not, any statutes on the books specifically criminalizing drug use during pregnancy, women have been prosecuted under statutes that deal with child abuse, assault, murder, or drug dealing []. One of the newest attempts in prosecuting women is using statutes related to the delivery of drugs to a minor. The effects of substance abuse during pregnancy can be mild or severe, baby may be born with mental retardation, behavioral and or learning delays, and alcohol use can harm organs like the heart and sometimes can be severe enough to cause death.
