As of April 21, 2016, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Fetal Alcohol Center for Excellence (FASD CFE) will cease operations due to lack of funding. Congressionally authorized under the Children’s Health Act of 2000, the FASD CFE has helped to greatly increase awareness of FASD, FASD-related services, and current research. The FASD CFE has contributed to SAMHSA’s overall mission to reduce the impact of substance misuse and mental illness on America’s communities.
