Addiction

Patient : My daughter is 21 years old and is an addict. She is currently 36 weeks pregnant and JUST stopped using oxycodone. She was using at least once a week, but not enough to have withdrawal symptoms herself. She stopped using because she figured that if she stopped using a month before the baby was due to be born, that he would not have to be weened off the medication at birth, but I don't think that is true? can you give me some insight on this please?
