Subject:Seeking information on state policies defining drug use as child maltreatment

Dear Colleagues: Do you know of any research on the effects of state statutes defining in utero alcohol or drug exposure, or alcohol or drug use during pregnancy, as a form of child maltreatment? Also, I am interested in any information on how state child welfare systems are addressing the opioid epidemic, specifically. Thank you!
