We help clients & families build the foundation for lasting change. The Family First Residential Program is a safe, supervised, and supportive environment for teenage boys to fully engage in therapy and begin to shift their lives.
We provide specialized programming and cutting-edge clinical treatment informed by evidence-based research. This takes place in a comfortable home-like environment that includes intensive group and individual therapy as well as educational support in a dedicated school setting. Our clean, modern, and well-appointed facilities are located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. These properties provide a quiet and peaceful place for adolescent boys to fully engage in the transformative process of treatment.
Please note that we want to insure the safety of your child. Potential clients that are experiencing active delusions, hallucinations, or suicidal/homicidal intentions will be referred to the appropriate level of care before entering our program. Please call admissions staff to clarify if this does or does not apply to your loved one.
The Long Term Solution
Residential treatment is not a “quick fix” for your son or your family. As an ethical and reputable treatment provider, Family First Adolescent Services helps teenage boys and their families gain valuable insight on how to begin treating the emotional, mental, and behavioral patterns that have disrupted the family system. Our clients learn to process the emotional issues and early childhood traumas that have been blocking personal growth. In this way, our families begin the individual and collective healing process. Providing a space for families to gain new tools, awareness, and stronger relationships, the journey toward long term success is then sustainable.
We provide one year of free follow up care through the Family First Alumni Program in order to be a part of that journey and assist where we can.
