Experience successful change as a result of the evidence- based model.

Services are provided to both the child and the family in a home-based setting at times that are convenient to the family. MST is an intensive family and community-based treatment that addresses the multiple determinants of serious delinquent behavior in juvenile offenders. The worker utilizes a system of intervention which requires complex networking with interconnected systems that encompass individual, family and extrafamilial (peer, schools, neighborhood, court) factors. Interventions may be necessary in any one or any combination of these systems. Emergency services are provided 24 hours per day 7 days per week.
