Colorado Systems Integration Model for Infants




This is a five-year grant funded by the Administration on Children, Youth and Families to develop a model program to serve Substance Exposed Newborns.  Through a multiagency planning process, this project developed a team within the Denver Department of Human Services Child Welfare Division that provides services to pregnant women who were using alcohol and other drugs as well as substance exposed newborns and their families.  Colorado WIN Partners staff members were subcontracted to provide evaluation services for this multi-million dollar project.  While a true randomized design could not be used for this project due to Denver Department of Human Services policies, it was the only project in the nation to develop a comparison group to measure the effectiveness of the services provided.
