MST is a time-limited, intensive family and community based treatment that addresses serious anti-social behavior in juvenile offenders ages 11-18. MST addresses the factors associated with delinquency across the youth’s settings (e.g. family, peers, school, neighborhood) and uses the strengths of each system to foster positive change. At least one adult/parental figure must be willing to assume long-term parenting role and participate with service providers for the duration of treatment.
