Hayes’ Research on Substance-Exposed Newborns Cited in BDN Articles

Research by Marie Hayes, University of Maine psychology professor, on the health of drug-affected babies was cited in a Bangor Daily News article about the rise of Maine newborns exposed to opiates and new options experts are exploring to help them. Hayes’ latest research focused on how an infant’s genetic makeup may affect the response to withdrawal. Hayes was also cited in an accompanying BDN article on whether methadone programs should offer birth control. Hayes said she has been criticized for her opinion that methadone programs should include birth control for addicted women.
