Comprehensive Child and Family Treatment services are high-intensity, time-limited, goal-specific
services designed to provide stabilization and deter the ‘imminent’ risk of State custody for the child/youth.
CCFT services concentrate on child/family/guardian behaviors and interactions with the goal of reaching an appropriate point of stabilization so the individual can be transitioned to a less intensive outpatient service.
CCFT services can be provided in home, community, or office-based settings using a frequency appropriate for the intensity and imminent risk presented by the clinical situation.
CCFT services can include therapeutic and/or skills training interventions that support improved functioning of the child/youth and the family unit so the imminent crises are averted. Services are designed to utilize and foster individual and family strengths and utilization of community supports.
