Pressley Ridge Included In Comparison of Treatment Foster Care Models

TFC ModelDuring the past six months, members representing the Mental Health PIC and the Substance Abuse PIC and staff from the Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services, the Division of Medical Assistance, and the Division of Social Services reviewed four models of care, specifically identified for use in treatment foster care services, that are currently being implemented by providers throughout the State. This evaluation process was undertaken to inform both policy and practice in an effort to support evidence-based practices, programs, and policies that would ensure that individuals receive the services and supports needed to enhance their overall quality of life.

In the matrix here, four models — Together Facing the Challenge, the Teaching Family Model, Pressley Ridge Treatment Foster Care, and Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care—are summarized along dimensions such as ratings provided by national registries, target population served, CALOCUS and ASAM levels of care addressed, training, required staff, evaluation, and fidelity assessment.
