Stigma and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) Fact Sheet

Stigma towards people with substance use disorders, especially pregnant populations, can be detrimental and may limit willingness to access care.  The Stigma and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) Fact Sheet was developed based on information presented during a CPQCC Maternal Substance Exposure (MatEx) webinar in January 2021 by Jennifer Godfrey, a Family Support Specialist with personal experience with NAS, Sandi Orlando, a former NICU RN who fostered infants with NAS, and Marty Wunsch, a Pediatrician and Addiction Medicine Specialist.
