Family Focused Treatment Association – FFTA works to advance best practices and advocate for policies that support families in their care and treatment for children. Treatment Family Care (formerly treatment/therapeutic foster care) is therapeutic treatment care for children and youth with special medical, psychological, emotional and social needs who can accept and respond to the close relationships within a family setting, but whose special needs require intensive or therapeutic services. Treatment Family Care is the least restrictive form of out-of-home therapeutic placement for children with severe emotional disorders. TFC keeps children out of in-patient hospitals, congregate care, and group homes, which are more expensive for State budgets to fund.
