Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) is a serious, complex disorder characterized by withdrawal symptoms and long term developmental effects. Incidence rates for NAS nationwide have increased since 2000. Understanding predictors of NAS may assist in targeting public health programs to address the issue. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence and sociodemographic predictors of NAS in North Carolina. Our results demonstrate the NAS incidence rate for North Carolina was 9.7 per 1,000 live births in 2016, indicating a 51.6% increase since 2000. Significant associations between NAS and race, ethnicity, payer-type, income, birth weight, and hospital length of stay.
