Family Treatment and Rehabilitation – Queens
Family Treatment and Rehabilitation is an intensive program that provides supportive services for families with a caregiver or child with severe substance abuse or mental health issues. FTR programs offer the same basic services offered by Family Counseling and Support Programs, but these services are modified and/or intensified to meet the family’s specific needs. The programs make active efforts to link family members to substance abuse and mental health treatment programs or self-help groups. In addition to being assigned a Case Planner, each family works with a Parent Aide to assist parents with home visits, escorting, teaching home management skills, and more. Specialized, licensed staff provide mental health and substance abuse evaluations and consultation.
