What is FACS?
Glenwood’s Family and Community Service is Alabama’s premier in-home treatment provider. We utilize leading edge research-based methods, your family’s strengths, community support, and a team of highly qualified intervention counselors and therapists to ensure holistic, positive, and systemic change.
What does FACS do?
FACS provides individual, behavioral, and family therapy in your home. We serve as advocates and counselors for children and their families. By providing support, structure, and education, FACS aims to improve family functioning.
Who do we serve?
FACS serves individuals between the ages of 2 and 22 with a DSM V diagnosis who are medically stable, have families committed to treatment, and can benefit from therapeutic interventions. Treatment is not limited to individuals diagnosed with Autism. FACS provides treatment to individuals with any behavioral, emotional, or developmental disorder that diminishes family function. Currently, our services are limited to individuals within a 30-mile radius of Glenwood’s main campus. Our services are covered by Medicaid, ALLKids, and private pay.
How can we serve you?
FACS is committed to meeting individuals and their families where they are, both physically and emotionally. We focus on in-home behavioral interventions and establishing structure and support within the home that generate lasting, positive change. In addition to in-home behavioral interventions, FACS advocates for the individual served in the school setting by providing classroom support, attending Individual Education Plan (IEP) meetings, and collaborating with teachers and professionals providing treatment in school, and we strive to promote consistency between home and educational environments. FACS will also assist your family in collaborating with other medical providers to ensure thorough and continually progressive treatment. FACS will also coordinate with Glenwood’s outpatient services to provide parent training, psychiatric care, psychological evaluation and assessment, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and ongoing individual counseling when necessary.
