    Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is a scientifically proven intervention for at-risk youth and their families. Therapists work in the home, school and community and are on call 24/7 to provide caregivers with the tools they need to transform the lives of troubled youth. Research demonstrates that MST reduces criminal activity and other undesirable behavior.

This high-quality, strength-focused family counseling model is designed primarily for at-risk youth who have been referred by the juvenile justice, mental health, school, or child welfare systems. Services are short-term and conducted in clinic and home settings and can also be provided in schools, child welfare facilities, probation and parole systems, and mental health facilities.
