Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) is a condition in which an infant undergoes withdrawal from a substance to which he or she was exposed in-utero. Different classes of substances, including opioids, antidepressants and barbiturates, may cause NAS when used during pregnancy. The most common substances causing NAS are opioids.
Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome continues to systematically impact America and Tennesseans. The epidemic’s impact on foster care and foster parents is staggering and heart-breaking, especially when it involves the youngest victims – opioid-impacted babies born to addicted mothers (kidspeace.thinkific.com 2020)
