CanFASD’s research team 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 also adapting the guide into an online training module in the CanFASD e-learning portal and will provide a link when it is ready.
