Family Systems

About Family Systems 

When a teenager is experiencing mental health or substance use, the entire family is affected. Family Systems theory is a theory of human behavior that defines the family unit as a complex social system in which members interact to influence each other’s behavior. At Family First, you will learn how members of your family interconnect, influence, and impact each other as a system rather than an isolated individual or problem. 

Working with Families

At Family First, the entire family is our client. We work diligently with each member of the family system that is deemed most appropriate to engage in the treatment process to address the patterns and issues affecting them. This is accomplished through weekly family therapy, parent focus groups, peer support for alumni families, and sophisticated educational and therapeutic opportunities to engage in treatment.
