What is Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome?

Neonatal abstinence syndrome effects can be felt not only by you but can also ruin your child’s life. When a child has to experience the effects of drug withdrawal at birth, you are setting them up for many hardships. Please do the right thing and call Resurgence Behavioral Health immediately before NAS permanently affects your child’s health.

Considering the Safety of Your Child

Whether you are suffering from drug abuse or were prescribed these drugs by a doctor, these drugs will negatively impact you and your baby if they suffer from neonatal abstinence syndrome effects.

Going through a detox program may be challenging, but the long-term benefits far outweigh any short-term discomfort. Resurgence Behavioral Health offers Women’s focused rehab to meet the needs of you and your little one.

Understanding Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Effects

Neonatal abstinence syndrome effects, also known as NAS, is a group of conditions caused by prescription or illicit drug withdrawal. A baby is exposed to drugs while in the womb, and harm is often caused by taking medications during pregnancy. Suppose you take medicines like benzodiazepines, opioids, or antidepressants. Your child may be at risk for neonatal abstinence syndrome effects. Alcohol, stimulants, and drugs such as cocaine can cause NAS neonatal abstinence syndrome effects in most cases.

During neonatal abstinence syndrome, drugs ingested are passed through the placenta, causing severe developmental and physical harm to your baby. The short-term and long-term effects of NAS are severe but are preventable if you get treatment now. We know you want the best for your child, and time is essential during this crucial time of pregnancy. Resurgence Behavioral Health offers several combined therapies and detox programs to safely get you and your baby through addiction,

Effects of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome

Besides having a negative impact on your life, Neonatal abstinence syndrome effects are a lifelong consequence for your child. The joy of your new baby should not be marred by the presence of a syndrome that is 100% preventable. Possible congenital disabilities, developmental problems, or even the possibility of SIDs are just a few of the problems related to neonatal abstinence syndrome effects.

Serious and immediate side effects of NAS include seizures, breathing problems, premature birth, the possibility of contracting a disease for intravenous drug use. Neonatal abstinence syndrome effects can be felt for as long as 18 months, causing severe developmental issues.
