Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT)

Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT) is an integrated, comprehensive, family-centered treatment for teen and young adult problems and disorders. MDFT simultaneously addresses substance use, delinquency, antisocial and aggressive behaviors, mental health disorders, school and family problems, and prevents out-of-home placement. MDFT has been implemented in diverse settings and is supported by over 25 years of research by the model developer as well as independent groups.
