Is there a treatment facility for individuals with FAS?

0

Parents seeking out of home placement for a child or adolescent with FAS is a common call received by FEN. While we are not aware of specific FAS treatment/residential facilities, many parents have reported to us they find success with mental health facilities rather than facilities for individuals with developmental disabilities. Contact your state social services department for more information regarding group homes and other alternate living situations. Another helpful suggestion from parents is to try placing the individual with FAS into a supported living apartment. While this does not mean that all individuals with FAS need support to live, this one option for families struggling with issues that make it difficult to keep the family intact.
