Years of experience, advanced training, and a commitment to continual improvement of our clinical program has created the opportunity to heal for thousands of family members across the country and world-wide.

Family Support Before Treatment

Parents are met with warmth, compassion, and steady professionalism from the moment they call our helpline at Family First. Our highly trained admissions staff guide families through Support Meetings to ensure a smooth transition into the treatment process. We aim to support families as they navigate the obstacles in the way of finding the right kind of support for their son by coordinating with the insurance company, connecting parents with different members of the team to answer their questions, and create an action plan for moving forward.

Family Support During Treatment

Parents receive five different points of contact from members of their son’s care-team at Family First within the first seven days of admitting to treatment. We believe that this comprehensive and immersive level of communication is necessary to ensure a successful onboarding for families into the treatment process. From there, parents are supported with weekly family therapy sessions with the Family Therapist, weekly update calls with the Program Coordinator, weekly academic updates from our academic team, and multiple offerings for virtual group therapy and support meetings for patients and families every week.

Family Support After Treatment

Parents, along with their son, are onboard to our alumni program the day of discharge. Alumni programming includes up to a year of direct follow-up and youth case management support from our Alumni Coordinator, multiple support meetings per week, collaboration and community with other alumni parents, events, and an Alumni App.
