Clinical Trials Network (CTN) Pacific Northwest Node - ADAI serves as the Regional Research and Training Center (RRTCs) for the Pacific NW Node of the CTN, a multisite network of regional RRTCs working in conjunction with community-based treatment programs to implement and evaluate behavioral and pharmacological interventions with demonstrated efficacy in community-based programs. See also: CTN Dissemination Library.

Fetal Alcohol and Drug Unit - FADU is a research unit within ADAI dedicated to the goals of studying fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) across the life span, disseminating research information, providing consultation for individuals affected by prenatal exposure to alcohol, and intervening with high-risk mothers to prevent future births of children with fetal alcohol and drug effects. Our focus includes prevention and intervention projects on an individual and community basis and multidisciplinary clinical follow-up studies. FADU also provides staffing and curricula for trainings, workshops, invited lectures, and conferences on FAS/FASD prevention and intervention at the regional, national and international level. The FADU project Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP): Intervention with High-Risk Alcohol and Drug Abusing Mothers is an evidence‐based home visitation case‐management model for mothers who abuse alcohol or drugs during pregnancy. Its goals are to help mothers build healthy families and prevent future births of children exposed prenatally to alcohol and drugs.
