Systems Level Approach to Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) – a Michigan Health Endowment Fund grant.
Community Partners in Saginaw and Marquette Counties are coming together to improve supports for families with babies with NAS. Representatives from child welfare, substance abuse disorder treatment providers, medical community, early childhood service providers, and persons with lived experience will assess and make strategic changes to existing services through formalizing collaborative processes and widespread staff education. A State Level Advisory Council contributes expertise and resources. “Lessons learned” and key resources will be shared through a Replication Guide.
