FAQs

1. My doctor says an occasional alcoholic drink during pregnancy is alright. Why does ZEP say no amount is safe?

Although some physicians still tell patients that moderate drinking is ok during pregnancy, research has never discovered a safe amount of alochol to consume while pregnant. According to the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), "women should avoid alcohol entirely while pregnant or trying to conceive because damage can occur in the earliest weeks of pregnancy, even before a woman knows that she is pregnant." To learn more about ZEP and ACOG's position, click here.

2. What services does ZEP provide?

The Zero Exposure Project is NOT a service provider. Instead, it is a community awareness and education campaign aimed at preventing all tobacco, alcohol and drug use during pregnancy. If you are looking for treatment options, please view our referral tool to find the resource thats right for you or contact us if you'd like help getting connected with services.

3. How do I find out more about ZEP in my area?

Right now, the Zero Exposure Project only exists in Hillsborough County. On this site, you can learn all about ZEP's efforts to prevent substance use during pregnancy, how ZEP came about, resources and referrals in Hillsborough County and neighboring areas or you can contact us with inquiries.
