Prenatal Drug Use and Newborn Health: Federal Efforts Need Better Planning and Coordination
Vijay A. Däó»Souza (au)
The prenatal use of opioids, including heroin and opioids prescribed for pain management, can produce a withdrawal condition in newborns known as neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Cases of NAS have tripled over the last decade and treatment costs for newborns with NAS -- most of which are paid by Medicaid -- are more than five times the cost of treating other newborns at birth. This report examines (1) federally funded research, federal programs, and other federal agency efforts related to prenatal opioid use or NAS; (2) gaps identified by federal agency officials and experts in efforts to address prenatal opioid use or NAS; and (3) how federal efforts to address prenatal opioid use or NAS are planned and coordinated. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
