For his NAS, Xzavier was prescribed Methadone -- a drug addiction treatment medication given to recovery addicts and newborns exposed to opiates. Every morning at 10 a.m., Blair gives a very small dose of Methadone, less than a fraction of a millimeter, to Xzavier. The medication is kept under lock and key at her motherÕs home nearby.Adam Desiderio / NBC News
