Description - Drug Misuse and Motherhood by Marcia Jackson

bThe growing use of illicit drugs among women has become a major concern for health professionals and social services. The reluctance of drug-using women to seek help from drug agencies and to disclose their use of drugs to ante-natal, midwifery and social services is now officially recognised by government agencies. However, devising an appropriate strategy that will overcome these fears will not be easy without a better understanding of their causes and effects. Drug Misuse and Motherhood gives drug-using mothers a voice. Based on longitudinal research and indepth interviews it provides new insights and much-needed information in five key areas: - family life - pregnancy - motherhood - service delivery and development - implications for policy. The user-perspective of this book is balanced by the professional viewpoint on the same issues. It offers a unique source of data for researchers and fresh inspiration for practitioners working in the field.
