It is an alarming trend in Western New York and across the country: babies born addicted to prescription pain killers.
U.S. Senator Charles Schumer visited Buffalo's Sisters of Charity Hospital Monday, telling reporters
and hospital staff the nation must act now to reduce the alarming number of prescription drug-addicted infants.
"Western New York is facing a serious problem with the growing trend of what is known as NAS, Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome," said Senator Schumer.
