FCA offers families an effective therapy program for troubled adolescents and other family members.
As one of many social services provided by Family and Children’s Aid (FCA) in Connecticut, multidimensional family therapy (MDFT) is a treatment program for young adults that involves the entire family in the process. As part of a research program funded by the government, MDFT is one in a series of new techniques used to treat young adults for drug abuse and other behavioral issues. Over the last 17 years, this type of approach has become widely accepted as a proven, family-based treatment methodology.
Founded in 1809 as the Hartford Female Benefit Society, FCA is one of six regional offices of the Child and Family Services of Connecticut. The organization is dedicated to providing a home for every child and to supporting children who have been abused or neglected, or who might be without parental guidance or support.
