Technical Assistance Impact Fact Sheet Series

The SAMHSA FASD Center for Excellence is proud to announce the release of the second and third Fact Sheets in a new series of Technical Assistance (TA) Impact Fact Sheets. These products are designed to help agencies enhance their capacity to prevent and address FASD.

The Addressing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) In Women’s Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Fact Sheet PDF icon provides vital information for women’s residential substance abuse treatment centers seeking to expand their capacity to address FASD, and describes the value of these services for systems, clients, and their families.

The Integrating Sustainable Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Services in Your Existing Service Setting Fact Sheet PDF icon addresses four key components of adding FASD services to already-established service settings: designing and implementing program components; developing Task Forces; expanding staff knowledge and skills around FASD; and collecting data to measure and report outcomes.

These free, downloadable documents compile key lessons learned from agencies that have successfully expanded and sustained their ability to address FASD.
