Is it okay to detox from drugs while pregnant?

Hello I recently found out I was pregnant and smoked marijuana heavily before I found out and stopped as soon as I found out. I got offered a job and it requires a drug test. I purchased a 5 day rescue detox and it says do not use if pregnant but it also says you can consult with a dr regarding it. The ingredients are gelatin, dicalcium phosphate, vegetable magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, mcc. If I do this detox could it harm my child
