Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) are a group of conditions that can occur in a person whose mother drank alcohol during pregnancy. FASDs are completely preventable if a woman does not drink alcohol during pregnancy.
CHOICES is an evidence-based intervention that increases motivation and commitment to reduce or stop drinking and/or use contraception effectively.
CDC is working to make alcohol screening and brief intervention (SBI) a routine element of health care in all primary care settings to identify and help people who drink too much.
Each year on September 9th, the world recognizes FASD Awareness Day. Our partners have developed a packet of materials to help you plan FASD Awareness Day activities.
