Family Centered Treatment®
MENTOR Maryland utilizes Family Centered Treatment® (FCT©). Developed by the Institute for Family Centered Services, a part of MENTOR Maryland, FCT is an evidence-based, best practice model of intensive in-home treatment. Our specialists work closely with families in their homes, at times that are convenient for them. Using the FCT model, we help them learn and adopt positive behavioral patterns. The treatment process is designed to promote lasting, meaningful outcomes. A 2011 study of data collected over a five-year period showed that 90% of the families who completed treatment stayed together. Click here to learn more about the FCT model.
