Texas recognizes June as Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) Awareness Month
Virtual presentations will be provided instead of an in person symposium, for the continued safety from COVID-19
In recognition NAS Awareness Month, Texas Health and Human Services hopes to:
- Increase awareness about NAS to pregnant women about the dangers of using opioids during pregnancy
- Increase education and reduce stigma in seeking help for pregnant women using opioids that they should not discontinue opioid use due to the risk of maternal relapse, overdose, withdrawals and fetal distress
- Provide community resources to pregnant women in Texas.
