Family Centered Treatment® is a best practice, tested and evidence-based model of home-based treatment that was developed by practitioners over a 20 year period. 

FCT's home-based treatment reduces the need for out of home placements. It has been refined based on research, experience, and evidence of effectiveness.

A distinctive aspect of FCT is that has been developed as a by-product of frontline practitioners’ effective practice.

FCT is extremely cost effective and stabilizes traumatized youth and families. In addition, FCT is one of few home based treatment models that has extensive experience with families and youth who move between the child welfare, mental health, and juvenile justice systems, otherwise known as “crossover youth.”

FCT can also be utilized with a variety of specialty populations where the need to address the whole family and not just an individual within the family-system is warranted.

While FCT is comprehensive and designed to address the causes of family system breakdown, it is also a model of treatment that goes beyond behavioral change.
