The research team at CanFASD has developed a guide which outlines current practices to support individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) who are in treatment for substance use. In this guide, they provide consolidated and expanded knowledge regarding appropriate substance use treatment approaches for individuals with FASD. They adopt the perspective that individuals with FASD can benefit from treatment support that is well-suited to their unique neurodevelopmental needs.
They are currently in the process of disseminating their guide and we would like to share it with you. Please feel free to use the link below to access the PDF of the guide. me know if you have any questions.
They are also adapting the guide into an online training module in the CanFASD e-learning portal and we will provide a link when it is ready.
