Service to Families

Family involvement is an integral part of the resident’s treatment program. The agency recognizes that residents are not independent persons and that it is essential to work with them in the context of a family plan. The integrity and dignity of persons manifested through family values and lifestyles are always respected. Involvement in other community services and/or support groups is encouraged whenever it might help maximize the strengths of family members. Family Meetings are scheduled bi-weekly for all families for at least 30 minutes each, unless contraindicated by court order or Family Service Plan. Additionally, youth enrolled in the Outpatient Services program are encouraged to participate in bi-weekly family therapy sessions with a Master’s level clinician. Family therapy typically focuses on identifying key roles in the family, supporting the family in developing healthier relationships and conflict resolution skills. Additionally, family therapy may focus on providing caregivers with additional tools for effectively managing youths’ behaviors, as well as how to advocate effectively for the youth in the school and community.
