Intensive treatment that begins at home

Our intensive in-home treatment programs provide help for troubled teenagers, children and families in their own homes at times convenient for the families. Youth Villages offers two intensive in-home treatment programs: Intercept and Multisystemic Therapy® (MST®).


The Intercept intensive in-home services program is an effective alternative treatment for children and youth who otherwise would be placed in foster care, residential treatment, detention centers, hospitals or other juvenile facilities. Diverting youth from these out-of-home placements, Intercept family intervention specialists provide systemic family therapy in order to preserve family attachment and increase problem solving skills for both youth and caregivers.

Multisystemic Therapy (MST)

Youth Villages offers intensive in-home services using Multisystemic Therapy (MST) in Alabama, North Carolina and Tennessee. MST has been demonstrated to be successful in helping young people age 12 to 17 who display serious antisocial behaviors and are at-risk of placement out of the home due to their behaviors.
