Family Intensive Treatment (FIT) Team is an integration of substance use and mental health treatment with child welfare services.
Family Intensive Treatment (FIT) Team
The FIT Team program integrates substance use and mental health treatment for substance-using parents who are involved in the child welfare system. In-home interventions and Family Mentors are used to achieve parental engagement in services and improve safety and well-being for children. The model is unique in that it uses mentors as team members of the treatment team to help support parents. These mentors themselves have experienced success with substance use treatment and have been substance-free for at least three years. The mentors and clinicians play a vital role, providing guidance, support, and a timely response to parents who are recovering from their addictions and healing from trauma they have experienced. Referral required.
