“Recovering” Slugpumps Start $2K GoFundMe Because Their Baby Is Having Withdrawals In The NICU And Their Dad Relapsed And Blew The Rent Money So They’re Moving To Shrewsbury

Here’s your GoFundMe scam of the week out of Shrewsbury:
So let me get this straight. Chad Drouin and and Brianna Ogden are clearly addicts, or at the very least recovering addicts. We know this because of this line:
“We both have been going to meetings out here in Worcester and spending as much family time to try and keep as level headed as possible during this difficult time to maintain our sanity.”
And of course Chad rocks the international symbol of dooshnozzles everywhere:
You know you’re a warm glass of Similac when you rock the flat brimmed Chicago Bulls hat in white, gray
Uncle skinny jeans and Madame Ovary just reproduced, AGAIN, and their baby is in the NICU, more than likely because the baby was born addicted and is now going through withdrawal. Of course the slugpump sperm donor doesn’t have a Goddamn. But don’t worry – he’s a good Dad because he shared some pictures on Instagram kissing the baby. And he’s also “her rock”:
“Chad has been my rock throughout it all and gone leaps and bounds for our beautiful little girl.”
What does that even mean? He held the baby a few times in the hospital? He fed the baby a bottle and burped her? He changed the channel on the TV? I’d love to hear more about how exactly Chad has gone leaps and bounds for the baby.
Oh, and they’re out of cash already because they’ve been “wiped dry” from being in the hospital for a little bit. Because their government subsidized health insurance that’s covering all of this isn’t enough. And now they need money for……the vending machine. They forgot to do what normal parents do when they’re having a kid – financially prepare themselves. Ya know, adult stuff.
But yea, they’re the victims here:
It has been so challenging for Chad and I mentally, physically & financially since we are an hour from home and nothing we can physically do that we haven’t for her and seeing her through this pain has taken a toll on us as her parents as well.
Sure, the baby is in pain like this because Mom and Dad put their own selfish habits first and decided to procreate despite the fact that their lives are a complete shitshow. But they’re the victims here because they have to WATCH the baby be in pain.
But wait, it gets better – they need money because they moved in with her Dad in Pawtucket, but then he relapsed and blew all his rent money so they’re getting evicted and moving to Shrewsbury:
“Tremors due to medications I couldn’t be taken off of during pregnancy.”
Translation – methadone.
God I hate this shit. I don’t care if people think Turtleboy is being “mean” here, because we don’t give a shit about your feelings. These are grown adults who made a grown adult decision to bring a human being into this world, and they can’t even wipe their own asses. It blows my mind. It’s like they had no real plan at all. Just plop out a kid and figure it out as you go along. They feel zero shame begging for cash on the Internet, knowing that their baby is struggling to survive because they couldn’t resist the needle while the poor child was incubated inside her womb tomb. And now they want everyone else to bail them out.
The crazy part is they’ve already raised $325. How stupid do you have to be to give that kind of money to two “recovering” junkies? What do you think they’re gonna spend it on. They have to be on all kinds of assistance, but as usual, it’s never enough. If you’re gonna give money to them you might as well go down to the clinic, buy them some clean needles, and say, “Happy birthday.”
The bottom line is that people like this should not be allowed to raise kids. It’s dangerous for kids being around addicts. I feel bad for anyone who has to lose their kids, but these people should at least let a nice gay couple rent one of them for a few months while they get their shit together. It’s bad enough their lives are a hot mess, why bring an innocent child into it with you?

I know this post was a long time ago but I can’t stop thinking about it for many reasons one mainly being I have a (novel?) AKA common sense idea. How about everyone who uses a methadone clinic must use birth control. Like you go in, get your methadone, get your birth control pill. I’m not saying this population doesn’t have a right to reproduce in the future but fuck no you don’t when you’re on that. Every child deserves a chance. It’s like people who bring kids into this world, under these circumstances, don’t give them the chance they deserve. Life is like a race these days and these babies are 10 miles behind the starting line straight out of the womb. If you’re a real woman you just don’t do that shit bringing in new life when it doesn’t stand a chance. If you need the drugs to help you, fine. Take care of you first. Nobody, no baby or child in this situation or any situation like it deserves to be second. Welcome to motherhood.
People should have to have a license to have a child. You have to have a license to drive a car. you have to have a license to own a dog. You have to get a license to go fishing. But to be parents anyone could do it? Being a parent is one of the most important jobs someone can ever have. And we have children that are born addicted to crack,addicted to heroin,parents that beat them,neglect them, all sorts of awful stuff. I understand that everybody’s right to have a child but if you cannot mentally or physically take care of your child you shouldn’t have one.
You saying recovering addicts can’t be parents is the most stupidest shit I’ve ever heard your N idiot. You don’t kno shit about what it’s like to go thru something like that and it’s better to be on methadone then still doing drugs your a fucking idiot and sound terrible dude.leavs.them alone your nothing but a little bitch behind a computer calling yourself turtle boy or w.e the fuck you mean nothing. But briannas.story was.so.important u had to go.amd stop her go find me her kid is.sick are u paying the bills? No so how the fuck do u kno they are free you deserve to get your fucking face smashed in and run over by an 18 wheeler u fucking bug.amd then u Judy him by his clothes WHO ARE YOU to say he’s a bad parent by what he chooses to wear you sound so fuckin dumb ugh ppl like u deserve a good ass beating I hope she finds out who u are and does.everything possible to stop these articles that are clearly moot true.your a horrible person and I hope u rot
Yes, as a taxpayer I AM paying the bills. But you know nothing about how government assistance works, do you?
Clearly you have some unresolved issues.
1. the baby is in this place because its mother did not care to withdraw herself and continued to use drugs while pregnant.
2. this article may be judging Chad by what he wears – but if you know him (and based on how mad this made you, you do) you would know about all of the dumb ass shit he has done & continues to do in his life. He is not grown up enough to be a parent. Period.
3. As for Turtle Boy paying their bills – the answer is yes. And guess what? You are too if you have a tax paying job. Neither of them currently work & because of that we pay for their insurance, welfare, housing, etc. So yes, Turtle Boy, you, me & every other working tax paying resident is paying their bills.
I can’t understand anything you just wrote. Perhaps your time would be more wisely spent in pursuit of a basic education, so that you are able to communicate your thoughts more clearly to others via the English language.
hooked oh phonics didn’t work for them….lol
“your a cunt” she is on methadone so she is still an addict, if it was the vitriol shot then maybe I could say she was in recovery. But she knowingly selfishly put her unborn baby at risk each and every day she took her “medicine”. And as far as anyone paying the bills I am sure its the tax payers of Massachusetts that’s footing the bills ….ALL THE BILLS.
Just an FYI- the methadone clinic is where addicts can go for HELP. Was it irresponsible for these 2 to have a baby? Yes. But when I drug addict gets pregnant the only option she has to keep that baby alive inside of her is to either continue using drugs or get on methadone. Quitting cold turkey would kill the baby. So she chose the option of getting help and put down the needle. I don’t know them and neither do you. We shouldn’t be so quick to judge. I love turtle boy and the articles are great but this one is a bit too harsh not knowing all the facts.
I bet a pregnant junkie told you all this. You are so gullible and naive. You are right on ONE thing–having sex while on drugs is completely irresponsible. How can anyone risk conceiving a baby while on drugs? Birth control is not 100% effective. Just take it in the ass or in the mouth! Morons.
Anyway. A simple Google search will yield different facts.
ABRUPT withdrawal from methadone is what is to be avoided. Once the first trimester is over (delicate for ALL pregnancies), GRADUAL withdrawal from methadone can be done during the second.

Next thing you’re gonna believe is that drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes is a-ok while pregnant… Sigh.
I actually knew someone who claimed her doctor told her to smoke during her pregnancy because she was so small and smoking would keep the baby’s weight down so she would be able to deliver it. I guess her doctor never never heard of a c-section. If it wasn’t so sad it would be funny.
methadone is not a crutch or something that is to be used for the rest of your life since methadone itself is addictive. when she found out that she was pregnant she should of worked with the clinic to begin a ween down cycle to get herself off completely to give her child a chance. The only thing she did was trade one drug for another one she didn’t have to sell her ass for since the state gives it to her for free.
Tsk… Poor Baby suffering from withdrawal. I’m horrified. I hope DCF steps in sooner rather than later. Babies need stable loving homes with parents who are present, not out partying or on the nod with a needle in their arm. Sadly this innocent soul will likely end up being the next generation of ratchets that Turtleboy Jr. writes about.
I don’t understand why her doctor didn’t take her off the methadone or whatever she was on when she got pregnant? The thing that pisses me off most, she takes a legal drug now so she doesn’t go through painful withdrawals, ok I actually get that and it’s ok for some people I guess. But to stay on it when you’re pregnant so you don’t have to experience that pain knowing full well your baby will when it’s born it’s beyond selfish. She should have been weaning herself all those months she was pregnant, so her baby wouldn’t have to take it now and be painfully weaned.
I do have a few questions:
It also looks like at least she has one other child, where was he during all their drug days? Her dad just happens to relapse the day after baby was born, don’t people usually relapse during tough times not happy times? Do we really believe they’re going to use any of that money to find a new place to live in a few weeks, or pay the landlord what is owed? Doubtful, they will probably live in that apartment rent free until the several months long eviction process is over. Lastly, anyone think they will report this income to welfare?
No. They are not going to use this money for any rent due to the previous landlord, or the new place they are going to live (which is a rent free not big enough for all occupants apartment). It is probably safe to assume that they will use this money for drugs, or going out to eat, or some fresh new kicks (I mean what great parent wouldn’t?). Because in the years that they have been together – have they ever had to be financially responsible? The answer is most likely no.
As a teen parent myself, shit was rough. Even through the getting kicked out of my parents house, being abused by my childs other parent, and living paycheck to paycheck, my child never went without & I certainly never put a needle in my arm – no matter what kind of crazy situation I was in.
Being born an addict is something this baby has to live with the rest of her life. I do not know what the statistics are – but I am sure that she has a higher risk of becoming an addict later in life because of it. I personally think this is enough torture that this baby should have to deal with in a lifetime. Let her go – let her have a new family that loves her and can afford to care for her & will shelter her from this horrible way to come into life. Hey and while you are at it – send EJ with her. He is young enough that he can be saved also. There are thousands of people in this world that would love to have a baby but unfortunately cannot for one reason or another. Give them the chance to be the parent they have been preparing a lifetime to be.
$53,400. That’s the average cost of a hospital stay for an infant who is born with opiate withdrawal or other drug dependency issues. – Did either of the parents even make this amount in total last year? I am willing to be not because of the fathers legal issues not allowing him to leave the house never mind have a job.
I really hope that the state does the right thing & takes this baby & takes EJ. But this time DCF – don’t give her the children back.
You’re fucking disgusting
Opinions are like assholes everyone has them. Addicts are people too. Keep judging though because thats how you deal with your resentments torwards people of this kind. Thats all ive been seeing out of this stupid website lately. Instead of hurting people with this stupid bullshit website why dont you look at yourselves. I bet i can make a website talking shit about turtle boy and the people who work for him… but why would i? Who has time for that? Why dont you try making the world a better place instead of being prejudice. Prejudice- preconcieved opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience. I went to school with this girl. She just seen me speak the other night. The only thing that matters is that shes trying to make her life better. Humans need each other for help. Help – make it easier for someone to do something by offering ones services or resources. This is what true honest human beings do.
1. Yes, I WILL keep judging the fuck out of assholes like these two and continue to vent my vitriolic resentment here because I cannot physically strangle and choke them for their shit.
2. Yes, I CAN look myself in the mirror and feel proud that even though I am far from perfect, my mom did a good job raising me not to be the scum and plague of the earth like these two. Congrats, mum. Happy mother’s day.
3. Yes, I can honestly say that I am trying to make the world a better place, but FUCK if shitstains like these don’t make it easy by squandering my hard-earned tax dollars on ratchety tattoos, salon treatments, or restaurant meals! That’s money that could be used to care for paralyzed veterans, higher salaries for public school teachers, or an extra $100 in food stamps for a hardworking single parent. I hope they get an intestinal tapeworm and DIE a slow and painful death from that fucking sushi.
4. No, you’re NOT helping people by enabling them. You help people by calling them out on their shit. You don’t pat their hand when they mess up. You hold them accountable for the painful consequences their selfish actions and childish choices cause. In this case, we have a helpless baby born with an addiction. She and her brother, if left in touch with their “recovering” biological parents, will have sad, unstable, dysfunctional childhoods. In all seriousness, can you expect these two, who can barely take care of themselves, be able to adequately take care of another human being? They need to WAKE UP and smell their own BULLSHIT and do the reasonable, righteous thing and place their children in the care of a non-addicted adoptive family. That’s the first step in being a REAL parent. You put your children’s well-being ABOVE YOUR OWN.
Maybe they’ll use the money to go to a fancy “rehab” in the California coast to do yoga, meditate, get massages, eat organic foods to conquer their addiction
Great mother?…. Hmm Maybe get off methadone before you get yourself knocked up maybe so an INNOCENT baby that did not ask to be born ADDICTED to any drug whether illegal or not would of been the RESPONSIBLE thing to do. So don’t come here claiming how she is a good mother because she is not. And when she found out that she was pregnant she should of worked with the clinic to ween her off the drug to give her child a chance at being born and not having to go through withdrawal from methadone.
So, if the baby was born addicted, wouldn’t the hospital take a blood test and contact DCF immediately? Why hasnt DCF stepped in for this innocent little girl?
because its methadone from a clinic and not illegal street drugs unfortunately. Give it time I am sure she will fk up and the state will step in, hopefully sooner then later.
In a perfect world, sadly, the goal of DCF is to “Keep families together” no matter the cost to the child.
For those saying we don’t know them… I know Brianna very well. I’m actually a good friend of hers. Doesn’t mean that she’s not fucking up the generation she brought forth. I stand by everything I previously said
Did you meet her at a meeting? This is why they’re getting so much support and money, because the world is filled with parents just like them at the moment. Such a shame. I hope for the baby’s case they do get better, but I also have a feeling this won’t be the last article we see about them.
All the defenders prove your point. It’s simple. If the blog is wrong and hurts your feels , correct it , otherwise the logic and assumptions are correct. If my infant was gonna be plastered on go beg me , I would give a medically detailed account of the problem, like the real medical victims do. But whenever it’s a mother , used very loosely, chooses to abuse a child in utero , they need to be shed. Fuck you!!
I hope part of the hardship they’re going through is every Doctor and Nurse they deal with gives them shit about popping out a junkiebaby.
This article makes me fucking sick. Get your facts right turtle boy! This mother and father are great parents and their daughter is reallly sick. Brianna is a great
Other and maybe made some mistakes in her life but has worked reallly really hard and now is an AMAZING mother. Posing articles about people you know nothing about makes you cowardly and honestly makes you and this whole website look really stupid. Get a life. For everyone commenting, don believe everything you read. This websites got my friend and her story ALL wrong
I believe you, that she is a great “other.” But Mothering is not her forte.
Bertha, how many years have you, yourself, been a mother? If not,once again, judge not what you do not know.
I’ve been a mother for 32 years. I have six kids, and a foster son. I plan on taking in more foster children after I retire from helping the kids that drug addicted assholes keep pumping into the population!
I do know, idiot! I was a teenage mom, and I knew not to PUT A FUCKING NEEDLE IN MY ARM!
AMAZING mothers care about the health of their unborn child. This skank IS NOT an amazing mother and NEVER will be one. She might be a prisoner someday or an od’d junkie…..but NEVER an amazing mother.
And you look like an ass for defending a junkie.
Linda, you are the type of person who deserves to have gone through the torture and emotional calamity that being brutally raped causes.
She deserves rape? Really? You suck.
She is still a worthless, drug addicted piece of shit that CHOSE to let her baby be born addicted . Yes, chose so SHE would not have to suffer withdrawl that the baby suffers through. AMAZING mother???
You are obviously a deluded, thoughtless person who may or may not be a drug addicted piece of shit yourself. Because no sane, clear thinking woman would have made the comment you did.
Stop making excuses for losers.
Normal people deal with tragedies in their lives by finding the strength in some way; friends, family, religion, whatever. They push through the pain and grief and continue to function. We never forget tragedies in our lives, but we do live on. Normal people DO NOT use tragedy as an excuse for pathetic behavior.
These “parents” are losers, as are you. All destined to sit there looking for sympathy and handouts from normal people who work hard, plan carefully and prepare themselves to deal with adversity in life as well as the joys in life.
I do apologize for one thing. The length of this response.
Meghan, seriously, shut up. I am a survivor of rape and want to punch a bitch in the mouth whenever it is used as a sorry excuse for situations like this. It took me YEARS to open up about the abuse I suffered because of the trauma, pain, and shame, while scumbag junkie losers lie and make up stories about it to gain sympathy. This reeks of it and makes me want to puke. I also did not choose to try drugs because I’m not a moron. The rape did a number on my physical and mental health, but it did not make me stupid.
If the couple in this story, or any other druggie, TRULY care about their child, they would adopt them out. They have NOTHING to offer these children. DCF needs to get their shit together and adopt out more babies like these so the cycle stops. Hospitals and prisons should sterilize these animals.
Anyone can see that they are both trash. It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to solve “The case of the junky flunkies and their crackbaby”.
Again… if you consider addicts who wah wah about their feelings and difficulties while their baby is going through withdrawal in NICU to be so great, you really need to branch out in society.
Cindy Bryant, I am sorry that you, too, do not apparently know what ‘great parents’ are.
Do you see the ‘dad’ working long shifts while the ‘mother’ visits the baby in the hospital?
Can you picture them sacrificing ANYTHING for this child (sleep, “time to parrrtayyy”, not having sex again until they are married and can support a family, etc.) for their child/children?
Fast forward 18 years… do you see these two ‘parents’ happily married (to each other), sitting in the audience for their daughter’s high school graduation? I hope I am wrong, but I am not picturing that at all.
See, THOSE are some of the things that make ‘great parents.’
If Brianna wants to be a great mother: get clean, get away from addicts, get some job training, and stop sleeping with guys who aren’t married to you (ie: committed to you).
Can’t do that? Consider being a great PERSON and let a healthy family adopt her.
He’s a soulless ginger, and she’s an idiot for spreading her legs for a few seconds to let him penetrate her cum-bucket.
I feel sorry for the little girl. No baby in the world should be born into this kind of situation. Douche bag parents! Still doesn’t mean that I’ll be making a contribution though.
Nailed it. They’re junkies. Her father is a loser too. He relapses and they jump ship. They go through life with no plan. The babies all fucked up because neither one of you can get your shit together. You’re not ‘recovering’ you’re still a JUNKIE. You’re just taking the LEGAL FORM of it. Do the kid(S) a favor and put them up for adoption. I hate to say it as a human being but to be honest, they’ll be better off without you. Baby Viv is so young now she won’t know the difference. Do you really think adoption is worse than what you have to offer, you two are literally a half-step above ‘worst case scenario. I.E the only was it could get worse is to literally sell your kid to an active heroin addict (Which should buy you two enough dope for the night)
Thank you for writIng this…you NAILED IT!!! This is why we have an opioid crisis…because people baby these addicts. They should not be able to keep babies. They should not be given handouts. They should not have free healtchcare. People who “adult” work their ASSES off, pay our bills, clean our homes and pay an astronomical amount for health care…and these assholes get a free ride. I do not feel bad for them and the shitty choices they made. You wanna know why I am not a drug addict? CUZ IT’S ADDICTING AND WILL RUIN MY LIFE OR KILL ME AND DESTROY THOSE AROUND ME!! And, one more thing…they do it for sympathy, of that I am convinced. Thanks for all that you are doing!!
You dont get needles from a methadone clinic… you dont shoot up methadone… i mean if you guys are gonna be assholes you could at least know what youre talking about
What other reason are people on methadone?
She was clearly sticking needles in her arm at SOME point.
If you believe that all drug use requires a needle then you do not know enough about the subject to make a statement.
unlike you, right Meghan?
You’re right, Meghan – I don’t do drugs.
Guess what? That makes me a productive member of society who is fully able to understand and exercise my first amendment right to free speech.
Glad you chimed in, though.
I’m sure they care so much about your words. Smh. Of course they don’t know what goes on at a methadone clinic. Neither do I. Why? Because we don’t put death into our views via a syringe. Smh
That was posed to say veins not views smh my phone sucks ass like these parents do
Supposed. Smh I hate this phone
Well I do know them, and they are by far kinder, understanding, and worth more than you.
Thanks for coming out Meghan.
Unfortunately the truth is that these people are selfish, pathetic drug addicts that can’t keep a needle out of their arm long enough to be appropriately sad and caring for a drug addicted baby that they produced.
I feel no sympathy for them and neither does anyone else here.
Explain to me how drugging your unborn child is being kind, and understanding. Please shut the fuck up. You sound like an idiot.
Are you KIDDING ME?
If you consider addicts who wah wah about their feelings and difficulties while their baby is going through withdrawal in NICU to be so great, you really need to branch out in society.
I hope they get clean. I wish them no harm. However, do NOT hold them up as great people…they are addicts, unmarried but making babies (ie:not making long term commitments to their ‘family’), apparently not working or supporting themselves, and are now panhandling with a coy description of what caused the baby to be in the hospital.
Why Shrewsbury btw and is ‘grandpa’ moving with them?
How about staying in a hospital near the baby to visit, etc. since there are no other obligations than meetings. (Maybe that is what they are going to do?)
Who is EJ? Another child?
Here’s an idea for the mother…get freed of your addict dad and baby daddy & get clean for your child/children.
They’re far kinder and worth more ? When they first thought of the word kind around the year 900, I don’t think they meant, a mom is being kind by sharing her drug addiction with her child, A persons worth can be measured several ways…on how they treat others, or on what they contribute to society (not financially). Being drug addicts and then bringing a poor innocent child into the world does not mean they’re worth more, because in fact it makes these two people worth less. Why ? because they didn’t care what this innocent would have to go through when she was born. They didn’t care about any long lasting problems this child would have. In fact, these two people are selfish assholes, and only thought of their own happiness and only thought of themselves. They had months to put aside money, in case something like this happened. There’s NO reason why Chad should not have at least one full time, if not both a full time and a part time job. There’s no reason why Brianna should not have at least a part time job, if nor a full time job.
I believe desperate people do actually melt these down and shoot them, they say they are addicted to the needle not necessarily the substance. I know of people personally who do this. As messed up as that is.. it’s a fact.
I’m working with this family personally what you have posted here, Facebook is False information
You people are so quick to judge
So quick to blame it on this,that
Don’t even look into the true facts
All do to doing a gofund me page
I can honestly tell you no one can be prepared enough for a New child exspecially a child that has to stay in the hospital longer due to medical reasons.
Bringing up people’s past is ridiculous exspecially when it was many years ago.
Chad,Brianna Don’t need the additional stress your false information is bringing upon them
You’re “working” with these people? In what capacity? What kind of professional uses the word EXPECIALLY? I work with disadvantaged families with small children, and I see this bullshit everyday! I have no sympathy for the pieces of shit that bring these statistics into this world. Selfish, shitty excuses for human beings, and yes, I am in the field, and yes, I know how to pronounce and spell “especially.”
Bertha, as you do not work with Chad and Briana keep your judgement to yourself.
Hey Meaghan, If I was working with these scumbags, DCF would have their kids already. My judgement is justified, because I’m the one who has to fix these poor fucked up kids, so fuck off!
Ghetto trash doesn’t deserve shit. Give the baby a chance at a good life and give it up for adoption to people who really deserve to raise child. Then that cum dumpster and shit stain can OD and do the world a favor. Maybe their funeral gofundme will be easier to raise money with.
Clearly your opinion is based on fact and not personal bias.
How the fuck are you ‘working’ with them? You’re an illiterate moron by the way you type. Not to mention ‘nobody is prepared for a new child’ really? Because having money in the bank to prepare the woman to be out of work for a while and setting up the house is shit normal people do
