Treatment That Works for Teens and their Families.

MDFT is an effective family-centered treatment for youth. Over three decades of National Institutes of Health funded research – randomized clinical trials, therapy process studies, economic analyses, and community–based implementation studies – testifies to the strong scientific basis for the approach.

 

Independently Evaluated as Effective and Do-able.

Reviews regularly conclude that MDFT exemplifies top-tier science. The MDFT clinical model is regarded as sophisticated but do-able. Clinicians evaluate the MDFT training methods as practical, concrete, and effective in teaching the model's core techniques.

 

Fits into Real World Settings.

Today, through community, government, and foundation partnerships, MDFT is offered in public and private mental health, substance abuse, child welfare, and juvenile justice clinical settings in the United States and Europe.
