Perinatal Addictions Prevention Project
The Perinatal Addictions Prevention Project (PAPP) serves Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Sussex, Union and Warren Counties and focuses on improving birth outcomes by reducing the number of infants exposed to substances in-utero.
The project includes:
- Working with prenatal care providers to ensure all pregnant women are screened regarding their risk of using alcohol, drug and/or tobacco.
- Providing professional and consumer education on a variety of topics. It is through education that PAPP targets the reduction of in-utero exposure to substances. A Directory of Services is provided to all healthcare providers serviced by the Partnership.
- Supporting the community by attending community events and health fairs, distributing information about alcohol and drug -free pregnancies, and acting as a community resource for professionals and consumers in need of information about treatment options.
