Forgotten Mom
“A mother’s joy begins when a new life is stirring inside… when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone.” -Unknown

The Forgotten Mom is a program specifically designed for expecting Moms who are battling with alcohol and drug addiction. Using drugs, alcohol, or tobacco during pregnancy exposes not just the woman but also her developing fetus to the substance and can have potentially deleterious and even long-term effects on exposed children. While addiction impacts the lives of those who are battling with the disease, it also impacts the lives of their loves ones as well. Unfortunately, for woman who are pregnant, the unborn baby suffers tremendously. The staff at Reawakening’s Wellness Center is proud to support and step forward to address the challenges for Mother’s and her unborn child. Reawakening’s Wellness Center is one of the few detox centers in South Florida that offers a treatment and detox program for pregnant women.

Upon entering the beautiful facility located in sunny South Florida, each mother will be assisted by the highly trained clinical staff. A Medical Detox Program specifically dedicated to deal with the complexities of alcohol and drug addiction withdrawal will be individually assessed. Our medical staff is trained on how to facilitate the safest pregnant detox programs, from providing the right medications to ensuring all prenatal health needs and gynecology visits are addressed. These programs are each designed by our highly renowned physicians who are specifically trained to protect and keep safe the mother and her unborn child during this process. Once the mother has completed detox, she will then enter the Forgotten Mom’s Program at Reawakening Wellness Center, where she will begin taking part of numerous therapies including program that integrate the 12 steps and Smart Recovery of individual, group and family therapy, including specialized training on pregnancy, proper nutrition for the Mom and her child and the effects of substances on the unborn child.
