Details
Family First Adolescent Services is an insurance friendly treatment center for mental health, substance abuse, trauma, problematic gaming, and behavioral issues. We offer a boutique experience with an extremely high staff to client ratio, and a program that is truly tailored for the adolescent client. Our clinical approach is intensive and diverse, when a client enters our program, they receive five individual therapy sessions, with their primary therapist, in the first seven days of treatment and none of the are assessments. Family First counselors have a limited case load of five clients in order to provide the best and most attentive care for our clients and their families.

At Family First, continuing education while receiving treatment is believed to be a valuable and esteem building prospect. Our Education Specialists are assigned to case manage the client's workload with their home school, tutor clients on specific area of need, and report to the client's family on progress in the class room.

Family members engage in the Parent Interaction Program which is a three day process-driven family program that includes Experiential Group Therapy such as psychodrama or role-playing, and expressive art therapy. We also explore information about the biology of the adolescent mind, shame, codependence and discipline through interactive presentation. Family members have daily homework assignments tailored to their specific family dynamics.

Family First is on the cutting edge of trauma informed care, we are the first adolescent program to utilize the Neuroaffective Relational Model (NARM) and we are hosts of the NARM Training Institute for professionals in our area.
