Friends and Colleagues,

TAADAS is concerned that recent changes to Chapter 820, which allowed for the criminal prosecution of women whose babies were born exposed to opioids and diagnosed with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS), did not adequately address access to care while criminalizing women who did not receive care.  It is our position that any policy on this issue should emphasize access to care for pregnant drug-using women while addressing the number of babies born with NAS. 

Therefore it is our recommendation that the current law be allowed to sunset and that a new focus be pursued to enable these women to have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies while receiving addiction treatment.  The data presented in this paper shows the ramifications for women seeking care after SB 1391 was passed as well as the extreme shortage of addiction treatment options for this population.  Thank you for reading and distributing this publication.

You can download the paper here. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me directly.

Looking forward to working together!
