NASCEND is an innovative clinical solution, education and technology company dedicated to improving outcomes for infants and families affected by maternal substance use disorder (SUD).
Each year, an estimated 15% of infants are affected by prenatal exposure to alcohol or illicit drugs. That means 1 infant is born every 15 minutes requiring treatment for neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) resulting in an aggregate cost of care of more than $2.5 billion.Teach me more
