Multisystemic Therapeutic Services

 

Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is an exciting treatment modality proven to have positive effects on juveniles who demonstrate external antisocial behaviors. MST focuses on improving and strengthening the social networks of the youth and his/her family. MST’s family-driven approach is more intensive than some other traditional approaches, devoting several hours of treatment each week to youth and their families.

 

Main components of the MST program:

 

  • “Whatever it takes” approach to providing services
  • Focus on understanding family/youth in the context of their “system”
  • Small therapist caseload (4 to 6 families)
  • Services provided at times convenient to the family
  • Treatment teams available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
