Prevalence of illicit drugs detected in the urine of women of childbearing age in Alabama public health clinics.
Each year, it is estimated that from 350,000 to 739,000 U.S. infants are exposed in utero to one or more illicit drugs.
To estimate the prevalence of and risk factors for illicit drug use by women of childbearing age in Alabama, during 2 months in 1991 the authors collected patient-reported histories, clinical histories, and urine specimens from 6,7 95 women statewide attending public health maternity clinics, family planning clinics, and a high-risk referral obstetrical clinic.
Blind drug screening of urine specimens for marijuana, cocaine, opiates, barbiturates, and amphetamines was performed with the use of a fluorescent polarization immunoassay.
