Family & Community Services (FACS)

Family and Community Services Program (FACS), a division of Outpatient Services, is a comprehensive in-home treatment modality for individuals who are aged 2-22 and have been diagnosed with an Axis I and/or and Axis II diagnosis. The goal of the FACS Program is to increase family functioning to a maintainable, healthy level—ultimately decreasing instances of abuse and neglect. The team offers in-home interventions, school interventions, and support with external service providers. Goals might include—but are not limited to—toileting, increasing social skills, reducing aggression, increasing appropriate communication, building emotional competence, and increasing self-esteem. The FACS program also engages the family through parent training. FACS meets you where you are and targets issues where they manifest in order to promote the most success.
