As we see more families and communities impacted by substance abuse and the opioid crisis, assessment, diagnosis, resources, intervention, and support for children with prenatal exposure and their families provide the strategies and tools to achieve their full potential.

On a National Level:

  • Every 25 minutes, a baby is born in the U.S. suffering from opioid withdrawal.
  • FASD is the leading cause of intellectual disabilities in the U.S.
  • Each year, an estimated 15% of infants are exposed prenatally to alcohol and/or drugs.

In Washington State:

  • The number of newborns diagnosed with neonatal abstinence syndrome has increased from 114 cases reported in 2000 to 881 cases in 2014.
  • There has been a four-fold increase since the 1990s in the number of newborns with complications related to prenatal substance exposure.

Locally:

  • There has been a rise in opiate use among pregnant women. Even when prescribed, the effects of prenatal use can have long-term ramifications for infants and children.
  • Snohomish County pregnant women comprised 26% of the women who received state-funded inpatient treatment for opiates in 2017.

All Wonderland services are available to families regardless of income, insurance, or ability to pay.
