We want to help health care providers learn better ways to care for infants suffering from problems related to opioid withdrawal.

The CDCI is receiving support from the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) to improve training & supports for children and families with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS). The work is called Project SCOPE: Supporting Children of the OPioid Epidemic.

The effects of NAS can extend beyond infancy. All families with NAS are eligible for Children’s Integrated Services (CIS), but participation is inconsistent around the state. We want to make sure CIS providers are trained in this approach alongside healthcare and other providers to increase interdisciplinary care.
