A Step Ahead Foundation of East Tennessee

Empowering At-Risk Women and Reducing NAS

A Step Ahead Foundation’s grant is “Empowering At-Risk Women and Reducing NAS (Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome).” This program provides the opportunity for women in East Tennessee who are working through addiction recovery to focus on their health and plan for their babies. The goal is to decrease NAS through education and immediate access to voluntary, long-acting reversible contraception. The results will increase positive pregnancy outcomes and education in the number of babies born with NAS in our region.
