What do adoptive and foster parents need to know about the impacts of prenatal exposure to opioids, Suboxone, and Methadone? What are the risks to a baby born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome or Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome (NOWS)?  In this course, we talk with Dr. Julian Davies, a pediatrician at the University of Washington’s Center for Adoption Medicine and their FASD and Prenatal Exposure Clinic.
