Recovering Hope is an intimate and inspiring hour-long video about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). The video, created for viewing by women in recovery and their counselors, is divided into two half-hour episodes to allow time for discussion within a treatment session. Viewers will learn that FASD is an umbrella term describing the range of effects that can occur in an individual whose mother drank alcohol during pregnancy. These effects may include physical, mental, behavioral, and learning disabilities with possible lifelong implications. The term FASD is not intended for use as a clinical diagnosis. Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), a clinical diagnostic term included under FASD, describes a pattern of growth retardation, facial anomalies, and brain damage. Persons who do not have all three of these characteristics still can be severely affected. None of these problems can be cured. But all of them can be prevented. FASD is caused solely by prenatal alcohol exposure. It cannot be inherited.
