MST (Multi-Systemic Therapy)

MST is a an evidence based, 3-5 month intensive in home family counseling program that connects parents with the tools and resources needed to improve communication and strengthen the family unit.  Counselors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide in home support to families.  Our goal is to keep children and families safe, and prevent out of home placement.

Focusing on youth with behaviors at risk for out of home placement, MST counselors work in the home visiting families at least twice a week.  MST counselors work to:

  • strengthen family relationships, empowering parents to monitor, protect, and advocate for their children
  • develop behavior plans that are monitored and reveiw weekly to encourage responsible behavior
  • examine roles of school, peers, DYFS, probation, and/or the community and their impact on the family unit
  • develop unique personalized interventions to provide significant sustainable change

MST has proven effective in helping youth with disrespect, disobedience, drug/alcohol problems, excessive school truancy, running away, and criminal activity.

The MST program provides therapy for youth as aftercare to Camden Day, Camden Group Home, JJC Aftercare, Parole, and Camden Juvenile Probation. This program is a partnership with MST services from the Medical University of South Carolina.
