Les séparations des mères consommatrices de substances psychoactives et de leurs enfants : résultats dans une cohorte rétrospective française

Abstract : The international literature shows that children born to drug-addicted mothers are significantly more often raised out of home or have disrupted primary care. In 2010-2011 we inquired about a retrospective cohort of 167 newborns alive at discharge from the maternity unit from 1999 to 2008. No news could be obtained for 20 children. Two to ten years later, 41 children had been placed under Child Protection at one moment or another of their trajectories. Twelve children were adopted: three after a secret delivery, three because their mothers disappeared, one because the mother died and two by criminal court order. During the period, 26 children out of the 41 were placed with a foster family and 14 with other family members. The children were exposed to different kinds of disruption, two on average and up to six different care givers.
