OBGYN using drug screening as part of their daily routine are increasing across America. ACOG recommends physicians to test their patients for illicit drugs so they can seek help. Drug and alcohol abuse has a direct correlation with obstetric and pediatric complications. Birth defects and developmental disabilities due to prenatal alcohol exposure can be easily prevented in the United States. If more women are tested for alcohol and drug abuse, they are more likely to take action to cure it. It is a moral and ethical obligation on Obstetricians to implement a protocol for drug screening in their practice. No child should have to suffer for a lifetime due to birth defects that could have been prevented by few steps taken by the physician and the mother. If physicians are unaware of patient's drug abuse, medical care can be jeopardized. Women are less likely to take action or seek help if they are not screened and referred to alternative treatment. You can make a positive difference in creating a safe environment for many children to come by just adding a universal screening program to your practice. This will accommodate many patients who may never get treatment or seek help.
