Hope RISING Clinic is the only clinic in our region offering comprehensive services for children with prenatal substance exposure. Our goal is to reach every child and family in need.
Prenatal substance exposure affects four times as many children as autism spectrum disorder, yet resources and services to support this growing population are severely limited. As a division of Wonderland Child & Family Services, Hope RISING Clinic is changing the way our community addresses this silent epidemic.

Prenatal Substance Exposure (PSE)
While a major cause of developmental disabilities, treatment for prenatal substance exposure remains widely unaddressed and underfunded due largely to stigma and shame. Hope RISING Clinic provides a safe, healing, and judgement free environment for families. Hope RISING Clinic staff are uniquely trained to provide trauma-informed, specialized services for kids with PSE to optimize their prospects for a healthy and productive life.

Jes started his journey with Wonderland’s Early Support program before he was evaluated into Hope RISING Clinic for prenatal substance exposure (PSE). Since enrolling in Hope RISING Clinic, Jes has made significant strides and continues to make progress.

FASD Awareness & Action
FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders) is the leading preventable cause of birth defects and developmental and learning disability worldwide, but there is little awareness about the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure and FASD remains an “invisible disability.” Together, we can change that.
Parenting in Recovery Support Group
Join mental health therapist, Jessi Crowley, for a weekly support group, specifically for parents in recovery. Participants should identify as being in recovery from alcohol or drug use and should be invested in exploring how this aspect of themselves relates to parenting.
Wonderland is committed to implementing trauma informed practices, and proud to be designated an official CARE Community site through Snohomish County. CARE (Compassion, Appreciation, Resilience, Empowerment) sites are dedicated to ongoing learning and operational change focused on Trauma Informed Care.
