State health officials say it's a growing problem that has increased ten-fold in the last decade.
This year alone, 39 hospitals in the state have reported drug-dependent newborns.

My sister cares for a lot of babies born with addictions. Some of her stories are enough to make you break down and sob. Our society is in a very sad state when a life growing inside you becomes secondary to a drug.
