Center for Families—A Treatment Center for Teens and Families
Center for Families’ mission is to support teens and their families by identifying and healing the primary mental health issues underlying emotional struggles and high-risk behaviors. We treat individuals, ages 13–18, who are experiencing depression, anxiety, social isolation, trauma-related symptoms, and teen substance abuse. Center for Families is a distinctive and exceptional adolescent treatment center in that we take a whole-person, family-centered approach that addresses the root causes of mood and co-occurring disorders. While we focus on improving the lives of our teen clients, we also prioritize supporting the entire family to create lasting positive change.
Summer Enrichment Program
Our summer program offers outdoor adventures and creative expression, plus support with coping skills, mental health, and academics.
We’re Proud of Our Licensed and Dedicated Team
Center for Families’ caring and compassionate staff includes an impressive and growing roster of mental health experts from all over Pennsylvania. Our staff have a wide range of degrees and experience, including licensed clinicians, psychiatrists, family therapists, recovery therapists, art therapists, music therapists, adventure therapists, registered dietitians, nutritionists, care coordinators, teachers, and private tutors. All the staff at CFF have dedicated their professional careers to caring for and supporting teens in need.
Community Events & Educational Workshops
With more than 100 years of combined experience working with teens and their families, our clinical leadership facilitates sustainable healing for families through group therapy, educational workshops, and peer-to-peer parent support groups.
Our outpatient locations are in the family-friendly towns of Malvern and West Chester, amidst the meadows and rolling hillsides of the Pennsylvania countryside. Our program’s locations, along with our facilities and their amenities, play a key role in our integrated model of care, and have distinguished CFF as one of the top teen mental health and substance abuse resources in Pennsylvania.
