Parent Interaction Program
When one member of the family is struggling with mental health, substance use, or behavioral health issues, the entire family is affected. Treatment at Family First Adolescent Services also embraces parents and guardians in a healing process.
Our three-day Parent Interaction Program focuses on the deeper issues within the dynamic of the family system. During the program, parents experiencing similar issues work together to identify attitudes and behaviors that can help shift the family towards greater health and well-being.
