When youth are struggling with problem behaviors, it is important to recognize that their struggles are multidimensional and can
stem from a variety of influences.

Through The Village’s Multisystemic Therapy (MST) program, we recognize the relationship between these influences and work to help youth ages 12-18 make the changes they need to live healthy, productive lives.

MST is a scientifically proven intervention to at-risk youth that promotes behavioral shifts in their environments, focusing on the strengths of the individual, family and extra-familial systems to promote positive change.

The program uses a strengths-based systemic approach to reduce delinquency, substance use and improve family functioning and educational/vocational performance. Services include:

• Intensive in-home clinical services
• Assessment
• Case management
• Crisis intervention (including 24/7 on-call support)
• Treatment and discharge planning
