    The smallest victims of the Crisis Next Door

    The opioids crisis touches Americans from all walks of life, responsible for more deaths than either car accidents or gun violence last year. Addiction tears up families everywhere from inner cities along the coasts to rural communities in the heartland.

    Some of its victims are the smallest, most vulnerable among us. From 2000 to 2012, America saw a five-fold increase in the share of babies born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)—equivalent to one baby suffering from opiate withdrawal born every 25 minutes, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

    Last year, 198 babies were admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, for NAS. Today, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will tour that facility, discussing the Administration’s three-part plan to halt the opioid crisis.

    The First Lady’s “Be Best” initiative also takes aim at NAS, educating parents on the importance of healthy pregnancies. Last year, the First Lady visited Lily’s Place in West Virginia, where addiction recovery treatment is available to entire families.
