    Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA)

    The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) was signed into law on July 22, 2016, with the purpose of addressing the nation’s prescription drug and opioid epidemic. CARA went into effect July 22, 2016, including Title V, Section 503, “Infant Plan of Safe Care.” The legislation (PL 114-198) makes several changes to Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA), including:

    • Removes the term “illegal” regarding substance use; substances of use may include prescribed medications as well as illegal substances and alcohol.
    • Requires that Plans of Safe Care address the needs of both the infant and the affected family or caregiver.
    • Specifies that data on affected infants and Plans of Safe Care be reported by states to the maximum extent practicable.
    • Requires that states develop and implement monitoring systems regarding the implementation of such plans to determine whether and in what manner local entities are providing, in accordance with state requirements, referrals to and delivery of appropriate services for the infant and affected family or caregiver.

    Nevada refers to their CARA Infant Plans of Safe Care as a CARA Plan of Care as to not be confused with a CPS Safety Assessment. The development of a CARA Plan of Care is designed to promote the health and safety of an infant born substance exposed and identified as affected by substance use or withdrawal symptoms resulting from prenatal substance exposure or fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD); and to support the health and well-being of the infant’s parent/caregiver by connecting the family to treatment, social services and other support.

    The Nevada Perinatal Health Initiative

    The Nevada Perinatal Health Initiative has been underway since 2018. This network of medical professionals, social workers, hospitals, clinics, behavioral health programs, and policymakers has been meeting regularly to improve health outcomes for pregnant individuals and individuals of childbearing age impacted by substance use. This includes a statewide Reproductive Health Network (RHN), a Comprehensive Addiction Recovery Act (CARA) workgroup, and leadership from a Core Team of subject matter experts. These dedicated participants have accomplished many things in support of people and families in our state. For more information about participation in any of these work groups please contact the Women’s Services Coordinator, Lawanda Jones at l.jones@health.nv.gov or nevadaperinatalhealth@gmail.com
