Neonatal abstinence syndrome or NAS for short, can be defined as a group of symptoms or problems that occur in newborns who were exposed to an addictive opiate drug while in the mother's womb. The prevalence of NAS is increasing due to the current public health crisis known as the opioid epidemic.

The reauthorization of CHIP, which stands for Children's Health Insurance Program, is a topic of discussion in current health care debates. The elimination of this program would negatively effect the healthcare treatment NAS infants have access to and receive.

Please stand with us in supporting the reauthorization of CHIP to help the tiniest humans who are being affected by the opioid epidemic.
