What is Multidimensional Family Therapy?

Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT) is a comprehensive and family-centered treatment approach for youth problems and disorders.

One of the strengths of MDFT is that it is an evidenced based treatment for adolescent  problem behaviors – substance abuse, delinquency, antisocial and aggressive behaviors, school and family problems, and emotional difficulties.


MDFT has 30 years of research supporting it and it  is recognized as one of the best interventions for adolescents.

How does Multidimensional Family Therapy Work?


The family is the medicine.  

Through individual and family sessions, the adolescent will develop coping and problem-solving skills. These skills help with choosing  alternatives to substance use and delinquency. As the family communicates more effectively the family unit functions better day-to-day.  Ultimately everyone grows stronger.
