This is a review and analysis of Statesí policies regarding prenatal exposure to alcohol and other drugs, in order to help local, State, and Tribal governments: 1. Gain a better understanding of current policy and practice in place at the State level that address substance-exposed infants (SEIs); and 2. Identify opportunities for strengthening interagency efforts in this area. This study assessed state policy from the broadest perspective: prevention, intervention, identification, and treatment of prenatal substance exposure, including immediate and ongoing services for the infant, the mother, and the family. It reviewed Statesí policies regarding: pre-pregnancy prevention efforts; screening and assessment in the prenatal period; testing at birth and notification of child protective services (CPS) in cases in which infants are identified s substance-affected; the provision of services to SEIs and their parents after a CPS referral is made or other agencies become involved; and the processing of SEI-related referrals to developmental disabilities agencies. This review discovered considerable variations among the States in both policy and practice regarding SEIs. Figures.
