This was a retrospective review of case registry data regarding substance-exposed infants tracked statewide in Delaware from 2014 to 2018. Differences in maternal, infant, and substance exposure factors by level of child-welfare involvement (screened-in vs screened-out case status) and child abuse and neglect outcomes were examined. Screened-in status was defined as case acceptance for investigation, family assessment, or treatment referral. Using logistic regression, associations between factors and screened-in status and between factors and child abuse and neglect outcomes were assessed. Cases involving child abuse and neglect were analyzed qualitatively.
