At this time, none of the U.S. territories (Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands) have
laws related to alcohol use during pregnancy. Tribal laws vary, but the Indian Child Welfare Act requires
the Indian Health Service to make
residential treatment available for pregnant women with alcohol problems. In addition, the definition
of “health promotion” in the Act includes FASD prevention. The Act also
allows the Indian Health Service to make grants to tribes and tribal organizations
for various FASD prevention efforts, including alcohol treatment for high-risk women.
It also has provisions related to educating Native women about FASD.
