Why Project SCOPE Vermont?

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.

Vermont has one of the highest rates of NAS in the U.S. And for 20 years, Vermont has worked to decrease barriers for pregnant people to receive addiction treatment. A key initiative working on this is Project ICON (Improving Care for Opioid-Exposed Newborns) at the UVM Larner College of Medicine.

Funding: This project is supported in part by grant number 90DDUC0062, from the U.S. Administration for Community Living, Department of Health and Human Services, Washington, D.C. 20201.​​ Grantees undertaking projects with government sponsorship are encouraged to express freely their findings and conclusions.
