This is the July 23, 1998 hearing on "Expectant Mothers and Substance Abuse: Intervention and Treatment Challenges for State Government," held before the House Subcommittee on National Security, International Affairs, and Criminal Justice of the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight. From the opening statement of Mark E. Souder: "The link between substance abuse and child abuse is growing and we cannot look the other way. As history too often teaches us, all it takes for ill to prevail is for good people to do nothing. Early intervention and treatment must be a goal since a baby born to a drug-addicted mother is a situation ripe for future child abuse and the costs to society of that abuse are high, morally and economically." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Shirley Brown, Paula Keller, Joanne Huelsman, Tom Latham, Betty Foley, Francine Feinberg, Mary Faith Marshall, Charles Condon, Catherine Christophillis, and William Domina.
