Drug addiction withdrawal does not only affect adults, but also babies. Withdrawal of these babies include having the inability to suck from the bottle due to affected reflexes. A growing epidemic and seen regionally with a rise, it must also reflect a larger macrocosm of the inner war we are fighting as a nation. Education and prevention must continue and be furthered. Thank you to everyone attending this hurdle at every level of attention, for it takes a very special human being to have the compassion to see the disease of a mother who cannot see beyond her own pain. I believe in change and remember, if you have the hope, we need you to share it.
