Services include individual and group counseling, educational and vocational testing, parenting skills, nutritional guidance and drug and alcohol education. The women are encouraged to bring their children who participate in the developmental nursery program, Nip It in the Bud.

Nip It In The Bud Developmental Nursery Program

Infants, toddlers and preschoolers participate in our developmental nursery program. Each child receives a developmental assessment and a treatment plan. Activities in the nursery setting are designed to improve developmental milestones in the areas of cognitive, language, social-emotional and motor functioning. A major focus of this program is in developing a healthy mother-child relationship. It is through individual, group and dyadic psychotherapy that mother child attachment issues are addressed. Mothers learn to resolve the traumatic issues of their own childhood in their psychotherapy sessions. Through dyadic (mother and baby) psychotherapy and mommy/baby group mothers learn to apply healthy interactive behaviors in caring for their babies.

Boarder Babies Intensive Case Management Program

The Essex County Peri-natal Addiction Project sponsored by the New Jersey State Departments of Health and Senior Services, the Department of Human Services and the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse has as a major goal to find effective ways to substantially reduce the number of infants who because of their mothers substance abuse remain in the hospital beyond the time they are cleared medically for discharge. These infants may board in the hospital for weeks while DYFS finds a suitable placement for them.

Our outreach workers canvas the streets of Newark looking for pregnant addicted women. They bring the women to NRH so that they may meet with our case manager. The case manager develops a plan of action for each woman. The women are referred for prenatal care and substance abuse treatment. The Boarder Baby team arranges for all services the women may need and formulates a discharge plan for the baby. They accompany the women to appointments, conduct home visits, and monitor their attendance and progress. Intensive case management continues through the pregnancy and the postpartum period.

Not only does the program help reduce the number of boarder babies but more infants are born drug-free and are able to go home with their mothers.
