Services through the Family Learning Program Sexual Abuse Treatment Program are provided at NO CHARGE to families. FLP depends upon the Children's Medical Services (CMS) contract to provide the administrative funds for the program. Families through our program also receive assistance through VOCA and Victim Compensation. During the initial intake, families are assisted in completing the Victim Compensation application in order to receive funding for their treatment and additional services. Additional limited funds include Victim Compensation and donations.
What are the Guidelines for Treatment?
- The abuse must be reported to Department of Children and Families and/or law enforcement
- All of the family will participate in treatment
- Treatment will be comprehensive
- Participants cannot abuse drugs and/or alcohol
- Actively suicidal or self-injurious indvidiuals are not good candidates for TF-CBT
Referrals from familes or professionals with community agencies are initiated by calling the FLP line (321-604-5898). An Associate Director will speak with you to get the process started. We meet with all family members for intake interviews and provide assessment to determine eligibility. We develop a full treatment plan including referrals to other community resources as indicated. While FLP may offer individual therapy, we collaborate with existing therapists to address client needs.
Referrals - Dependency Evaluation Team
Referrals for evaluations through the Dependency Evaluation Team are initiated through existing contracts with community based care agencies in Florida through submission of an authorization/request for services or on a case-by-case basis wtih non-contracted agencies. Please call the FLP line (321-604-5898) and ask to speak with Dr. Bennett if you are a representative of an agency wishing to schedule a pre-adoptive or dependency evaluation.
