In 2018, the Family First Prevention Services Act — referred to commonly as FFPSA — was passed. This ground-breaking legislation supports the use of evidence-based practices to promote the well-being of children, youth, and families and to prevent unnecessary foster care placements.

Family Centered Treatment®

Family Centered Treatment® keeps families together by helping them develop the solutions and skills they need to reduce risks in everyday situations.

We partner with families to identify and build upon their existing strengths so they can provide for the health and security of their children.

Family Centered Treatment® enables clinicians to directly observe families where members are most comfortable – at home. Interacting with family members within their “natural” setting makes it possible to directly intervene in unhealthy behaviors and to immediately reinforce positive, healthy life choices.
