Hushabye Nursery Colored1
Hushabye Nursery provides a therapeutic and inviting environment of short-term medical care to infants suffering from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) and their families. They offer non-judgmental support, education and counseling to families in a cost-effective manner. They are in the beginning stages of creating an NAS residential facility. Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome is the diagnosis given to infants that are withdrawing from opiates due to exposure prenatally. Neonatal withdrawal can take up to 8 weeks. These babies will be stabilized in the hospital. Once they are stable, they will be transferred to Hushabye Nursery to continue their withdrawal journey. Hushabye Nursery will specialize in NAS providing a more appropriate environment for these babies and their families. NAS babies need a quiet, calm environment; the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is high-paced and noisy. Hushabye Nursery will be the haven needed to help these babies withdraw.

• During 2008-2013 there was a total of 1,472 cases of NAS in Arizona.
• AHCCCS was the payer for 79% of these infants.
• There has been a 235% increase in NAS rates in Arizona from 2008-2014.
• The average cost of infants with NAS in the NICU is approximately $31,000 vs. $2,500 for non-NAS infants.

The stimulating environment of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is not designed to care for the unique needs of these infants and their families. Infants suffering from prenatal drug exposure are not the primary focus of the NICU. They aim to provide the specialized training for their staff to provide these infants and their parents with the support and resources needed to thrive in the recovery process.

Hushabye Nursery will be the first NAS facility in Arizona. They plan to replicate the national model of care for babies suffering from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome as provided by one other organization out of state. In addition, they plan to collaborate with other organizations to make sure the needs of the mother are being met. By caring for these babies at Hushabye Nursery and not in the NICU, cost of care can be cut as much as 50%. In addition to cost containment, this model will allow them to meet the needs of their families as it relates to food, clothing, shelter, and addiction.
