Alaska FASD Partnership

The mission of the Alaska FASD Partnership is to promote awareness, prevention, and effective life-long interventions for people affected by prenatal exposure to alcohol and their families.

The Alaska Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Partnership is a coalition of over 150 individuals and organizations committed to advocacy for issues related to FASD in Alaska. 

The Partnership was formed in
early 2010 after a groundswell of stakeholder effort and public comment to the Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse and its partners about the need for advocacy for people affected by FASD and their families.

The Partnership is guided by a steering committee of individuals, organizations, and state agencies, including people who experience FASD, family members, and professionals who work in the field. Additionally, the steering committee has members representing the Departments of Health & Social Services, Corrections, Education and Early Development, Labor and Workforce Development, and the Alaska Court System.

The Partnership advocates for diagnosis and parent navigation, family and peer support, prevention and treatment for pregnant women, FASD and the education system, FASD and the legal system, services for adults with FASD, professional development, youth with FASD, public awareness, research, and adequate training for professionals.
