Andy Anderson, MRA, Independent Small Programs Alliance and
owner of Andy Anderson Consulting, announced that Timpanogos
Family Services (TFS), East Orem, UT, has become the tenth and
newest member of the Independent Small Programs Alliance (ISPA). "I
worked with this small home-based RTC for a few days prior to
their joining and was very impressed."
According to the original press release announcing the start
of the ISPA, the alliance began in March 2005 and ISPA members
are in partnership with Andy Anderson Consulting (AAC), which
developed and manages the ISPA.
Anderson said Timpanogos Family Services is dedicated to providing
the best possible residential treatment services to young women.
Through a safe and caring family-style living environment, positive
role models and professional counseling (all based on a firm
foundation of faith and traditional family values), young women
are empowered with the tools necessary to succeed at home, in
school, and throughout life.
TFS describes the program as one that provides residential treatment
for adolescent females, ages 12-18, possessing emotional, psychological
or behavioral issues that have resulted in poor academic performance
and/or strained relationships in the home. "We specialize
in early intervention, and transition from a more acute or institutional
setting. Specific issues successfully treated at TFS include
depression, lack of motivation, feelings of hopelessness, low
sense of self-worth, entitlement, manipulation, and relationship
difficulties, as well as mood disorders, oppositional defiance,
attention deficit, post-traumatic stress and attachment disorders.
It is our mission to provide families in crisis with the resources
necessary to overcome the barriers that stand between them and
happiness and harmony in the home. We are committed to bringing
"TFS offers the truest family-style living environment
available. We do not have an institution or rotating staff. Live-in
home parents who welcome the girls into their family run each
of our homes. We model a healthy and productive home environment,
and teach the girls what their role and responsibilities are
in contributing to it."
