Adult Programs
SEAFAN  prioritizes the enhancement of supports that strengthen protective factors and enable individuals and families affected by FASD to reach their potential in the community.

Adult Mentoring Program

The Adult Mentoring program is based in Medicine Hat but provides service to the entire region. To support this priority the Network enhances the capacity and scope of the existing mentoring/coaching services at REDI by expanding both geographically and across the lifespan.

An enhancement to an existing service, this program serves to assist individuals as they mature into adulthood. The primary goal is to remain involved during this transition until a satisfactory support network is in place

FASD Adult Transition Program

The young adults who are turning 18 years of age will no longer qualify for the Youth Mentor Program.

The FASD Transition program provides the following:

•Crisis intervention and counseling
•Support with accessing services and transitioning to appropriate adult services
•Employability skills and supported employment opportunities
•Ensuring basic needs are met (housing, clothing, food)
•Living skills-decision making, budgeting, cooking, cleaning, financial management, completing
