Multisystemic Therapy

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

Through our Multisystemic Therapy (MST) program, we recognize the relationship between these influences and work to help adolescents ages 12-18 involved in the juvenile court system make the changes they need to live healthy, productive lives.

MST is a scientifically proven intervention for at-risk youth that helps them change their behavior by focusing on their strengths (as well as those of their family and other support networks) to promote positive growth.

Through our program, we help these youth succeed in school and/or maintain a stable job, as well as strengthen their family.

Services include intensive in-home clinical services, assessment, crisis intervention (including 24/7 on-call support), and treatment and discharge planning

Access Services

MST serves youth ages 12-18 who are on probation, struggle with significant behavioral problems in the community and are at risk of recidivism/out-of-home placement. Referrals are received through Juvenile Probation (Hartford, New Britain, Rockville and Willimantic).

This program is funded by the Connecticut Judicial Branch – Court Support Services Division.
