Adoption and Prenatal Alcohol & Drug Exposure: Research, Policy, and Practice Published in conjunction with the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, 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 counseled 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.

This book was developed with the support of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. It is designed to serve as a key resource for practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and others with an interest in, and a commitment to, adoption for substance-exposed children.
