The Developmental Outcome of Children Born to Heroin-Dependent Mothers, Raised at Home or Adopted.
Ornoy, Asher; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n5 p385-96 May 1996
Children born to heroin-dependent mothers (n=83) were compared to 76 children born to heroin-dependent fathers and to 3 control groups with and without environmental deprivation and health problems. Results found that developmental delays and behavioral disorders found among heroin-exposed children resulted primarily from severe environmental deprivation and less from in utero exposure.
