Indiana National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) is an umbrella term that describes a wide range of effects that can occur in an individual who was exposed to alcohol during pregnancy.
FASD is lifelong and often it is an invisible disability. An FASD brain is a damaged brain and it cannot be repaired. A person with FASD will need support throughout each stage of their lives.
Indiana NOFAS, Inc. seeks to reduce the number of individuals born with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) as well as support individuals and families living with FASD.
Indiana NOFAS joins the United States Surgeon General in advising women to abstain from alcohol during pregnancy due to the risk of birth defects.
