Our History

In order to serve the tiniest of those affected by the opioid epidemic, Lily's Place opened its doors in October 2014 as the first Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) Center in the United States. Click below to see milestones and highlights from our journey thus far.

Our Facility

Babies born with NAS require specialized care. At Lily's Place, we strive to make them as comfortable as possible while going through the weaning process. Our facility is designed in a very specific manner to achieve this goal. Click below for a behind-the-scenes peek inside our facility.
