Parent and Family Impact

Based upon extensive parent satisfaction survey results, see what families have to say about their experience with Family First.



Parents love our dynamic treatment program including intensive individual, group and family therapy sessions, cutting-edge treatment modalities, experiential excursions, an academic program, and continuing care planning.



Each client is assigned a care team that consists of a family therapist, individual therapist, case manager, academic coordinator, and program coordinator. Parents highly approve of our 3-to-1 staff to client ratio, and the fact that clients have access to staff around the clock to address any issues that may arise.



Parents rate us highly for our commitment to communication given that they hear from our staff a minimum of four times per week with updates on progress, weekly therapy sessions, case management, and educational planning. Additionally, each family always has a designated point of contact on the care team available for updates and support.



Parents and clients appreciate our nurturing and comfortable residential campus, CrossFit, and adventure therapy campus on the intracoastal, and our clinical and academic campus all facilities custom designed to provide a felt sense of care, safety, and structure.

Academic Support


Parents give our academic program high scores for allowing students allowing students to continue their schooling while receiving treatment. Family First teachers case manage each client’s individual needs to provide a comprehensive academic strategy for success.
