Care Coordination, Treatment & Crisis Services
Family Stabilization Program
The Family Stabilization Program (FSP) is a comprehensive treatment program designed to serve youth with multiple challenges in their community. The program is designed to help keep families together by providing them critical skills and tools to resolve crises and achieve long term stability. The program’s primary objectives are to improve individual and family functioning, reduce the risk of out of home placement, and to bring out the best in both caregivers and children.
FSP Clinicians utilize a strength-based, trauma-informed, and family driven approach. Clinicians are trained in evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Collaborative and Proactive Problem Solving, and Motivational Interviewing.
