Neonatal Abstinence Program

Weisman Children´s Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) program serves infants who are withdrawing from opiate exposure. We create a calm, soothing, environment to meet the baby´s physical and emotional needs during the drug-weaning process.

The problems that these infants experience are primarily a result of central nervous system hyperexcitibility.

Symptoms can include irritability, interrupted sleep patterns and/or increased crying, fever, muscle tone and tremors. These infants frequently have difficulty feeding, and exhibit excessive sucking, diarrhea, and sweating. They may also have respiratory difficulties.

Our team works closely with the family or caregivers focusing on caregiver education and training, including understanding the weaning process, feeding issues and techniques to facilitate development growth and bonding.

Interdisciplinary Team

Our interdisciplinary team includes a pediatric physiatrist, registered dietitian, social worker, nurses and therapeutic recreation/child life specialists. Speech language and dysphagia specialists identify and educate parents on feeding techniques, positioning and equipment to facilitate optimal care. Physical and occupational therapists are available to consult and provide services as needed.
