Another Great Mom
It's been a while since we had a World's Best Mom post. Here is another nominee:
A 21-year-old female came in for heroine intoxication. She was 6 months pregnant. She had been abusing heroine most of her pregnancy. She had been in 3 different detox programs, but left them all AMA to go use and abuse again.
The only reason she came in this time was because her grandmother caught her shooting up and called EMS.
I heard her on the phone with her dad...."Are you going to bring me cigarettes up here or not?"
I called our psych team, and they could do nothing for her due to her leaving AMA all the time. Same went for our social worker. All I could do was notify CPS. They already had a case against her.
Personally, I think since she is harming a child she should be legally locked into a room AGAINST HER WILL until she detox's. It won't kill her.....too bad that can't happen.
