Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)


The Department of Health and Social Services FASD Program aims to prevent 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 progress and evaluate program outcomes
