Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) in Children

  • Overview

    Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) is a term for a group of problems a baby experiences when withdrawing from exposure to narcotics. It's estimated that 3 to 50 percent of newborn babies have been exposed to maternal drug use, depending on the population and area of the country.

    How Boston Children's Hospital approaches neonatal abstinence syndrome

    Children's is devoted to addressing the needs of high-risk babies and their families. One such program is our Young Parents Program (YPP), which provides quality medical care and health education to teen or at-risk parents and their children in low-income and at-risk environments.

    YPP is part of the Children's Hospital Primary Care Center (CHPCC), which is dedicated to helping young parents learn positive parenting skills, attitudes and behaviors so their child experiences healthy development and growth in the critical first years.
