Pediatric Interim Care Center (PICC) The Newborn Nursery, is a one-of-a-kind, model program that provides specialized, 24-hour care for drug-exposed and medically fragile newborns. PICC brings babies safely through withdrawal from drugs, including heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, methadone, and prescription drugs. The pioneering program also facilitates visitation for families, provides caregiver training, and allows the babies after the leave, and offers a range of community outreach and education services.
More than 12,000 infants born in Washington State each year have been prenatally exposed to illicit drugs. Many of these little ones suffer serious effects and need the help that only PICC provides.
