Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) #58, Addressing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), is now available for download from the SAMHSA Store.
The first TIP to deal directly with the topic of FASD, TIP 58 provides best-practice guidelines for preventing and addressing FASD in behavioral health settings.
The publication of TIP 58 provides a valuable new resource to the field of FASD. We encourage everyone to download the TIP and share it with providers, and also with individuals and families impacted by these disorders.
We are also invited to read the new Ask the Expert column, featuring an interview with Dr. Sterling K. Clarren, co-chair of TIP 58. And keep an eye on the Web site for announcements about forthcoming Webinars about the TIP and how it can be used to expand FASD-related services in a variety of settings.
