Wisconsin sees increase in babies born dependent on opioids

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin is seeing an increase in babies born dependent on opioids or other drugs. The state Department of Health Services says 598 babies were born with the condition known as neonatal abstinence syndrome in 2015. That's up from 142 in 2006. The Wisconsin State Journal reports the rate of babies born with the condition more than quadrupled. The long-term impact isn't clear. Short-term consequences include seizures, rapid breathing or difficulty feeding.
