Maintaining Strengths Program: Strengthening Families and Empowering Youth

The Maintaining Strengths Program works to strengthen and maintain the family, improve coping skills, teach family members to care for their child/adolescent and to serve as an advocate for their child/adolescent. This treatment model involves family therapy services. The main focus of this treatment is with the child/adolescent and family strengths. The service can take place in the home, school and community settings.
The Maintaining Strengths Program was developed to keep the family together. The program is usually used as a step down from Family-Based Therapy, but it can also be used as a step up from IBHS and outpatient therapy. This program is voluntary and time limited to nine months.
