Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Reitman Foundation funds pilot study of treatments for neonatal abstinence syndrome

(Kessler Foundation) 'The prevalence of drug addiction has resulted in a large population of newborns with the symptoms of acute withdrawal that define neonatal abstinence syndrome, or NAS,' stated Dr. Botticello. 'The paucity of research studies hinders our understanding of the implications for long-term child development and well-being. This pilot study is an important step toward the larger longitudinal studies needed to ensure the development of effective strategies for the treatment of NAS and the long-term health complications that may arise for these children.'
