We believe that parent/legal guardian participation is key to treatment success. This participation includes:

  • Participation in identifying the problems to be addressed and in the development of the treatment plan
  • Participation in family sessions
  • Ensuring their child’s timely attendance of appointments
  • Encouraging their child’s treatment participation
  • Supporting their child’s efforts to effect change
