Family Treatment Program. For children who are Washington County residents and who have a severe emotional disturbance (SED) and complex needs, the Canvas Health Family Treatment Program is an alternative to out-of-home placement. It provides flexible, culturally competent in-home and community-based therapy and treatment services that work to build positive family relational patterns and reduce disruptive behaviors and reduce the need for out of home placement. In-home treatment includes 24-hour on-call service crisis intervention and ongoing treatment provided by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals who coordinate service with schools, hospitals, treatment facilities and other service providers. Specific family problems vary from case to case but may include parental mental illness, emotional, sexual or physical abuse, delinquency, truancy, parenting problems, and physical disorders that limit daily functioning.
