Out-Patient Services

Clinical Services

Clinical services consist of a holistic approach to overall wellness that is aimed at achieving the optimal physical and emotional health of our clients, improving their overall functioning, and increasing their resiliency. Services focus on strengths and abilities, promote growth, and foster self-efficacy. FCSA provides a variety of clinical modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, (DBT), Motivational Interviewing and Reality Therapy. FCSA Clinicians are also well-versed in trauma informed care and provide a culturally sensitive approach to the needs of the children and families FCSA serves.

FCSA’s Clinical Department is comprised of a Senior Director of Clinical Services, two additional Directors of Clinical Services located in our Wasilla office and our Residential Treatment Center and several Licensed and Master’s Level Clinicians. Directors of Clinical Services ensure that all therapeutic services are delivered in a quality manner and in accordance with nationally recognized best practices for mental health and substance abuse treatment.

FCSA Directors of Clinical Services ensure that all clinical staff receives regular and consistent training and supervision. Clinicians are encouraged to participate in workshops and seminars that enhance their clinical expertise. This allows for the professional growth of the staff, maintains consistency in treatment approaches and service delivery across programs, and reinforces ongoing support to clinical staff, particularly those just entering the profession.

Foster Care Services

Therapeutic Foster Group Homes

In Wasilla and the greater Mat-Su Borough FCSA provides outpatient clinical services and operates a respite home and four (4) Therapeutic Foster Group Homes for both boys and girls. Each home can provide services for up to five children. FCSA also licenses and supports a number of Therapeutic Foster Homes in the area.

The TFGH program is designed to provide service to children in need of a safe and supportive place to live that are experiencing low to moderate behavioral health issues. Each Home is operated and maintained by licensed foster parents and receive support from FCSA. The number of children placed in the home generally averages three (3). The homes are located in residential neighborhoods and are reflective of a family experience rather than an institutional setting. The children attend public school and are involved in social and recreational activities in the community.

FCSA holds a License from the State of Alaska which authorizes it to license therapeutic foster homes in Alaska. FCSA foster homes provide service to children needing a place to live who have low to moderate behavioral health or mental health issues. FCSA foster homes are considered therapeutic foster homes because the children placed in the homes have a need for treatment services.
