This report shares findings from our project on youth with FASD who have substance use challenges. Fifty young people with FASD, as well as 55 caregivers and service providers, were interviewed for their perspectives on risks associated with FASD, service barriers, and effective approaches and supports that can reduce the risk of substance use and facilitate youth's healthy transition to adulthood. The project also included data analysis from previously collected youth self-report surveys.
