What is Family-Centered Treatment?
Family-Centered Treatment is a home-based therapy model designed to find simple, practical, and common-sense solutions for families faced with disruption or dissolution of their family. This can be due to external and/or internal stressors, circumstances, or forced removal of their children from the home due to the youth’s undesirable behavior or parent’s harmful behaviors.
The program is provided with families of special populations of all ages involved with agencies that specialize in child welfare, mental health, substance abuse, developmental disabilities, juvenile justice, and crossover youth. More information about FCT is available at the Family-Centered Treatment Foundation website.
