Overview

The MST (Multisystemic Therapy) program services youth and families involved with the juvenile justice system.  Multisystemic therapy is an intensive family and community-based treatment program designed to make positive changes in the various social systems (home, school, community, peer relations) that contribute to the antisocial behaviors of probation-involved youth who are at risk of out-of-home placement. Clinicians within this program will assess, support, and engage the youth through the 9 MST Principals and MST Analytic Process. 

 

More information about the evidence-based Multisystemic Therapy Treatment Model, please visit MSTservices.com. 

 

"The MST program empowers parents to sustain the interventions being provided in the home environment as it shifts from family’s relying on service providers to being able to rely on their already existing strengths to promote change behaviors.  The structure in MST allows parallel growth between both the families whom we serve and the clinicians through intensive treatment, supervision, and consultation.”
