Pregnant daughter parole violation no prison rehab programs for women
My 3 month prego daughter was just violated upon asking for her to be sent to a rehab I was informed by a Parole officer that NYS has programs for men but none for women and thier office laughs because no women have questioned it His words were a smart woman with a good lawyer could fight them because men have better rehab opportunities then women WHY? Their expecting me to look for a long term rehab before she goes in front of the Parole judge or back to prison is where shell go which is a waste of time for an addict any thoughts or help Thanks
They will do what they do. As a pregnant offender with an addiction problem, they want the baby born without the problems caused by addiction. This means either a long term rehab, preferably starting with a locked ward, or prison until the baby is born. The focus is more on the pregnancy, not the addict/offender.
The best you can do is either find a rehab that fits the bill, or accept that your grandchild will be born in prison. If it's the prison version, you need to work with a family law attorney so that you are set up to take the baby upon birth and until your daughter gets out. This, of course, assumes you can take care of a baby - something that's difficult enough when you're younger. Those 2 am feedings when you're the grandparent can be much more difficult, especially since you probably have a job that needs your attention as well.
This is not fun, for sure. This is not the way anybody wants a grandchild coming into the world.

If you have no ability to get her into a long-term rehab, Taconic and Bedford Hills have several programs that may be relevant to her situation. Read up and find out what prison is relevant to her custody status and needs.
