Free text This book provides important information on the impact of prenatal substance exposure on children’s immediate health and well-being; the long-term implications for children’s health and development; the role that a positive postnatal environment can play in remediating the effects of prenatal substance exposure; how prospective adoptive parents can be counselled regarding the effects of prenatal substance exposure, and the ongoing services and supports that are needed for adoptive families and their substance-exposed children to maximize positive outcomes.
