Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: Physicians should continue to support the Texas Department of State Health Services in efforts to develop appropriate evidence-based policies to prevent fetal alcohol syndrome including prioritizing pregnant women for drug and alcohol treatment. TMA also should support funding to increase the availability of drug and treatment centers, as well as, mental health resources to be available to this vulnerable population (Committee on Addictive Diseases, p 116, A-94; reaffirmed CM-MPH Rep. 4-A-04; amended CSPH Rep. 2-A-14).
