COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -
Heroin is becoming one of the largest epidemics in northern Kentucky, and over 1,400 babies in the area were reportedly treated for drug withdrawal in 2012.
An organization in Covington is providing support to expectant mothers to turn that statistic around.
The Healthy Newborn House opens today to provide housing and support for expectant new mothers who are battling addiction to heroin.
Representatives from the House say it can cost $55,000 in medical costs alone to treat drug addicted babies compared to the approximate 4,000 for a healthy baby. With half of the babies in St. Elizabeth's Neo-natal ICU drug addicted, the Healthy Newborn House is fighting to give them, and their mothers, a chance.
Mothers and their infants can stay in the home up to four months after giving birth. During that time, moms receive life skills training, addiction support, education support and assistance in looking for permanent housing.
The Healthy Newborn House is partnered with Leadership northern Kentucky and Transitions, Inc. The official ribbon cutting is at the house, located on Greenup.
