The MIECHV program is administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) in partnership with the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). This resource for MIECHV awardees provides essential information about the opioid epidemic, opioid use disorder (OUD), and neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). It includes relevant research; offers strategies for MIECHV awardees and their state partners in early childhood, public health, and substance misuse and mental health treatment; and highlights promising efforts underway in Maine, Colorado, West Virginia, and Massachusetts.
