“Colorado doctors are changing the way they care for these babies,” reports CBS Denver anchor Britt Moreno. Moreno interviewed Colleen M Wheeler, a specialist in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine with Lutheran Medical Center, a CHoSEN Collaborative participating hospital, about change in practices to support newborns exposed to Opioids, as well as trends in Denver. CHoSEN Collaborative hospitals are implementing best practices to support families of newborns prenatally exposed to substances throughout the Rocky Mountain region. 

Moreno also sat down with a mother of two to talk about her experience being pregnant and trying to combat addiction in the hopes of reducing stigma surrounding getting treatment.
