SCLDAT-Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders


The Thompson Institute has been funded by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to lead the Sunshine Coast Local Drug Action Team (SCLDAT). SCLDAT is focused on working with the community to raise awareness of and reduce the harms associated with alcohol use during pregnancy, and to support families impacted by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.
