Therapeutic Foster Care
Therapeutic Foster Care | Health Connect America
Therapeutic Foster Care is a medically necessary treatment, which is authorized by public state agencies (child welfare and Medicaid) for treatment services to be available for children. Children with adverse childhood experiences, as well as emotional, behavioral, medical, or developmental needs, receive structured treatment within a therapeutic foster care setting. This program promotes well-being, family connections, and community integration.
Component features of therapeutic foster care include compassionate and professional staff who support the foster families and youth by providing a range of services including:
- 24-hour emergency services
- In-home and outpatient psychiatric services
- Coordination of medical treatment when necessary
- Foster parent training in behavior management and various treatment approaches
The primary goal of Therapeutic Foster Care is to reach an appropriate point of stabilization. The ultimate goal is for the child to transition back to their home, whenever possible.
Currently, we offer Therapeutic Foster Care in Alabama, Georgia, and Virginia.
