Behavioral Health Detoxification Inpatient Treatment

Hushabye Nursery is a 12-bed residential infant detox medical facility providing an innovative, trauma-informed care model to treat Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) and provide continuous support for families experiencing Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). Newborn babies with NAS require a complex and painful withdrawal from the opioids they were exposed to in the womb. It is the only facility of its kind in the country that includes wrap-around family services. Hushabye Nursery’s mission is to embrace substance-exposed infants and their caregivers with compassionate, evidence-based care that changes the course of their entire lives. Its vision is to reduce disparities in access to health services to improve the health and well-being of newborns who are suffering from opioid withdrawal, and their families who are suffering from opioid addiction. Family engagement and health equity are its two guiding principles. We are available to families statewide.
