Therapeutic Support for Families

New Behavioral Network’s Therapeutic Support for Families (TSF) Program offers services which aim to encourage and facilitate positive change within the home, school, and community at large. The ultimate goal of the program is for our clients to remain within the community while receiving less intensive services. Our Therapeutic Support Specialists (TSS) help effectively engage the entire family in achieving desired goals.

Children ages 3 to 17 are eligible to receive therapeutic support services.
