Address the problem of addicted newborns

January 6, 2014
The Marietta Times

In your opinion piece of Dec. 24, 2013, "Ohio can't ignore drug, alcohol addiction of newborns," you state that "A substantial number of babies born in Ohio come into the world addicted to illegal drugs. It is a problem everywhere. But the precise extent of the crisis ... is not known. A bill introduced in the Ohio House of Representatives could change that. Hospitals in the Buckeye State would be required to report the number of babies addicted to drugs, if the bill becomes law. The reporting bill could provide information allowing more effective action to curb the problem."
