Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Program
The mission of the Division of Behavioral Health's section of Prevention and Early Intervention Services FASD Program is to prevent all alcohol-related birth defects and to improve the delivery of services to those individuals already affected by fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).
To meet this mission four (4) primary goals have been established to address FASD across the state of Alaska:
1. Prevent fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD)
2. Diagnose children as early as possible
3. Improve lifelong outcomes for individuals with FASD through improved services
4. Document our progress and evaluate program outcomes
Our approach is community-driven with a focus on systems change and program improvement. We have placed a strong emphasis on the inclusion of families and caregivers as critical partners in our plan, as well as strong multidisciplinary partnerships with those many disciplines impacted by the effects of disabilities resulting from prenatal exposure to alcohol.
