Abstract

50-70% of babies born to mothers on Subutex and methadone during pregnancy show signs of withdrawing from these medications. This is known as Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS). In order to reduce the chance these children will need to be put on medication, it is important for them to be placed in a non-stimulating environment for the first five days of their life. Often, the mothers and families of these children are not aware of, or do not practice, non-pharmacological methods to reduce the amount of stimulation their children are exposed to.
