Children

Case Management

The addiction professional can help families cope with FASD during the recovery process by building a protective environment for clients and their children. This may include helping them obtain safe, stable housing, assisting with daily living skills, such as bill paying and food shopping, and overseeing home situations. It is also important to establish a network of community service providers who will be available for aftercare to promote ongoing recovery and avoid relapse.18 Interacting with social and educational service agencies can be overwhelming and confusing, and each agency typically uses a specialized vocabulary (i.e., jargon) that is difficult for nonspecialists to understand. It is important to help the client identify available services, determine which ones are effective for their children, and understand how to work productively with service providers.20
