Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders

This 3-part series on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) is presented by Melanie Lane, LMSW, LCDC, AAC, the Unit Coordinator for the Center for Health Care Services Restoration Center, a detox, public sobering unit, and intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment facility located on the Haven for Hope campus.

The presentation aims to:

  • explore interventions that work with drug or alcohol exposed children,
  • explain intervention techniques to motivate parents to seek help, and
  • increase awareness about the impact of alcohol and drugs on the community.

  • Clarity Child Guidance Center is the only nonprofit mental health treatment center for kids ages 3 to 17 in South Texas. Our staff of children’s mental health professionals is the largest in the region. When a child is in crisis, we work with families to get much needed treatment regardless of their ability to pay.
