Infant Health

The Infant Health Committee’s goal is that all babies will be born substance free and be socially, emotionally, and physically healthy.

The Infant Health Committee works to engage stakeholders at all levels, including persons receiving services and other community members to develop and implement a system of care for substance abusing mothers and their babies. The committee advocated for the establishment of detoxification protocols which led to the program at Memorial Healthcare System for substance abusing mothers.

The Committee also promotes the importance of Infant Mental Health by supporting a system of care of trained professionals and appropriate interventions.  Broward County continues to utilize Early Childhood Court and Child Parent Psychotherapy, an evidence-based practice to promote reunification, which increases infant health.
