Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue on Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) explores the consequences of prenatal drug exposure beyond the immediate neonatal period. NAS has the potential to affect a child even after resolution of withdrawal, precipitating a gamut of biological, genetic, and societal changes that may, more often than not, result in detrimental outcomes for not only the child but also his/her family and the whole society. This Special Issue encourages clinicians, families, and policy-makers to consider strategies that will minimize and reduce the impact of NAS on both an individual and a societal level.
