A Plan to Treat Opioid-Addicted Newborns That Helps Families and Saves Tax Dollars – The Hill

Read article - An opinion piece by Alison Volpe Holmes, associate professor of pediatrics and of the Dartmouth Institute, in which she discusses the innovative way she and her colleagues are treating opioid-exposed newborns. "We will not end the opioid epidemic with just prevention and treatment programs. We will only break the bondage of opioids with unconditional love, and with community. The best place to begin is with the innocent, with the littlest victims of the epidemic," says Holmes. (Holmes is participating in this year's Dartmouth Public Voices project.)
