Together We Thrive
The SHIFT Begins With You
You and your family are the most important people your baby needs to be safe and healthy. We know you want the best for your baby. We believe that parents with a SUD are parents first, however it can be a challenge to provide the nurturing care your baby needs if you are not nurturing yourself first.

Make a SHIFT in Substance Use Disorder
The Arizona Department of Health Services reported that from 2017 to 2020 there were 936 confirmed cases in Maricopa County of infants exposed to substances prenatally who experienced Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS.)
That means over 300 babies born per year in Maricopa County were affected by NAS. The number of newborns diagnosed with NAS has grown exponentially in recent years as a result of the national opioid crisis. We know that parents of these affected children face challenges as well.
