A study assessing a Manitoba alcohol rehabilitation program suggests participants are more likely to have their babies taken from them at birth than those who aren't seeking help. The study found a quarter of infants born to women who participated in the InSight program were seized by Child and Family Services within 72 hours of birth. University of Manitoba researcher Chelsea Ruth said it's not clear why the apprehension rate was higher for rehab participants, who often have no access to social services and struggle with mental health issues. (The study also suggests being in the three-year program helped women regain their children in the long run.)
