It is hard to beat drug addiction. But the woman who uses drugs can get better with the right kind of treatment -- even if she has tried to quit before and failed. Treatment is available, often close to home. The first step is to find out what kind of treatment a woman needs and where she can get it. If you are pregnant, and are unable to stop using drugs, call the free National Drug Information Treatment and Referral Line. 1-800-662-HELP 1-800-66-AYUDA. Women who get treatment can rebuild their lives.
