Alcoholism & FASD

Resources – Helping Young Alaskans Succeed

What is Alcoholism?

Alcohol addiction is a complicated disease, and finding the strength, support, and positivity through virtual connection and apps can help reinforce accountability in maintaining sobriety.

What is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)?

Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) are a group of conditions that can occur in a person whose mother drank alcohol during pregnancy. These effects may include physical, mental, behavioral and/or learning disabilities with lifelong implications.

Alaska Center for FASD

The Alaska Center for FASD was founded in April of 2017 by a group that includes those who have family members with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs) and professionals who work with children and adults with FASDs. The organization is currently growing and working to determine the focus of its mission and activities.

Our Story

“Reducing delinquency by supporting Alaska Native communities.”

Sobriety is a daily struggle; if you are working at being sober, the community is there supporting you. Sobriety, or effort to sobriety, could be for days, weeks, or years. If you are making an effort, we want to recognize your strength! Be a ROLE MODEL for our YOUTH! Be the ENCOURAGEMENT we all need! — Agatha Napoleon

Icelandic Model for Preventing Adolescent Substance use

A Successful Model

Why the Icelandic Model?

National Institutes of Health


This is the second in a two-part series of articles about the Icelandic Model for Primary Prevention of Substance Use (IPM) in this volume of Health Promotion Practice. IPM is a community collaborative approach that has demonstrated remarkable effectiveness in reducing substance use initiation among youth in Iceland over the past 20 years. While the first article focused attention on the background context, theoretical orientation, evaluation and evidence of effectiveness, and the five guiding principles of the model, this second article describes the 10 core steps to practical implementation. Steps 1 to 3 focus on building and maintaining community capacity for model implementation.
