Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is a time-limited, intensive family intervention intended to stabilize the living arrangement, promote reunification, or prevent and reduce the utilization of out-of-home therapeutic resources. This approach focuses on the natural environment of the child and family and strives to change how the child functions within the context of his/her home, school, neighborhood and peer group. A major emphasis of MST is to empower the parents of caregivers with the skills and resources needed to become independent in addressing the difficulties that arise in raising adolescents, and to assist the youth in developing life-long coping skills.
Therapists are on-call for their families 7 days per week around the clock. Each therapist carries a small caseload (4 to 6 families at any one time). For weekends, a 24-hour on-call system is active, with supervisory staff on as back-up to support the primary on-call therapist.
Adelphoi Village is the leading provider of MST services in the state of Pennsylvania.

The primary goal of the Family Advocacy and Support Program is to bring families through a strength-focused process that will help them reach their desired goals, whether that is related to parent/child advocacy or parent mentor support. To achieve the goals laid out, there are two levels of care that a family can participate. The Parent Mentor and Child/Parent advocate levels of care provide a supportive, family-centered approach that respects the family’s culture and values. The Family Advocacy and Support Program will work with the family to identify the service they need as well as connect and develop their natural supports and community resources (family, friends, and faith).
For information on the Family Advocacy Program, please contact Nikole Jackson at 724-838-9074 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Partial Program is a school-based program designed to accept children who require a higher level of structure and support than traditional mental health outpatient treatment, but who are not showing the level of acuity that would necessitate mental health inpatient treatment. This allows the child to remain at home in their community while receiving mental health treatment and educational support.
Partial Program uses an interdisciplinary team approach to provide a well-balanced, effective treatment system. The goal of the treatment is to help students replace negative coping skills with pro-social and more effective behavior so that they can return to a less restrictive environment. The Partial Program treatment team consists of a psychiatrist, program supervisor, master’s level therapist, mental health specialists, academic support staff and a nurse. Treatment teams use an interdisciplinary approach by collaborating with families and school districts.
