Family Integration

Here at Cascade Home, we believe the support system of each family is essential in the long term success of every student. We also understand that OCD and anxiety cycles are pervasive and likely have made a big impact on your family system. A part of our programing is not only assessing, treating, and aiding the health of each student, but also integrating the family system as a part of our program. We will individualize treatment to each family to provide family coaching and therapy throughout the student's stay at Cascade Home. In an effort to help you feel continued connection to their treatment, we will also communicate updates through weekly calls, emails, and updates to Alleva portal from your students' treatment team. Lastly, in an effort to provide quality clinical care, we will assess where each family is at upon planned transition date to give the most clinically significant recommendation for next level of care.

SPACE Training

SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions) training is a family-based intervention designed to help children and adolescents struggling with anxiety and OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder). This approach involves teaching parents strategies to support their child's emotional needs effectively. SPACE training emphasizes fostering a supportive and empathetic environment at home, encouraging parents to validate their child's feelings, and promoting autonomy in managing anxiety or OCD-related challenges. By empowering parents with skills to navigate their child's emotions and behaviors, SPACE training aims to improve family dynamics, reduce anxiety symptoms, and enhance the child's overall well-being.
