Patrick calls increase in newborns undergoing drug withdrawal a public health epidemic

a PSC In The News reference, 2012

"Number of US newborns with drug withdrawal rises as more mothers abuse painkillers, heroin" - Washington Post. 04/30/2012.

A recent study by PSC post-doc affiliate Stephen Patrick and colleagues found the number of U.S. babies born with signs of opiate drug withdrawal has tripled in a decade because of a surge in pregnant women’s use of legal and illegal narcotics. This has caused a spike in hospital treatment for these infants, the costs for which are disproportionately covered by Medicaid. See the related JAMA article.
