Development of a collaborative statewide approach to improving access to care for drug- and alcohol-affected women and children
The Foundation's program, New Jersey Health Initiatives, was designed to support innovative community-based projects that address one or more of the Foundation's goals in health and health care.The purpose of this project is to reduce the effects of prenatal drug and alcohol exposure on children in New Jersey through the development of a collaborative, statewide approach to improving access to care for drug- and alcohol-affected women and children. This will be accomplished through a collaborative program with the New Jersey Department of Health & Senior Services and seven Maternal and Child Health Consortia in the State. This project will also improve the rate of early identification and referral of exposed babies to a specialist in order to reduce the long-term effects of drug and alcohol exposure.
