ABOUT THIS SERIES
Nearly 5,000 babies were born affected by drugs in Maine from 2013-2017. These innocent victims have been caught in a crisis marked by suffering and strained hospitals and state resources. This series of often gut-wrenching stories examines the challenges within this sad reality.
In response to the series, members of Maine’s Congressional Delegation pushed for and supported federal legislation and funding to reduce the state’s high number of opiate-dependent infants.
