Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Prevention & Awareness

Would you feed this to your baby?

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) protects and promotes quality of life and the health of all Missourians throughout the life span. To reduce the risk of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug-exposed pregnancies, DHSS provides education for health care professionals to promote early identification, intervention and referral of at-risk women and children. DHSS also maintains TEL-LINK, a toll-free information and referral telephone line for maternal, child, and family health services.

The Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug (ATOD) Prevention and Awareness Program within DHSS has resources for health care providers through its assessment and counseling forms, as well as ATOD educational brochures. Tools to document assessment of drug-exposed pregnancies, as well as to document counseling regarding the dangers of prenatal alcohol, tobacco, and drug use are available in downloadable form. These tools and brochures that address substance use in pregnancy are also available at no charge through the DHSS warehouse.
