Centerstone’s Therapeutic Foster Care Program works from an Evidence Based Practice Model and provides an array of services ranging from Residential Group Care, Therapeutic Foster Care and Adoption Services for children and families. When families are in trouble, Centerstone is here to help. We work with children and adolescents with a history of emotional and behavioral disorders. We know that parenting children and teens with these disorders can seem overwhelming. Our caring, experienced staff (with over 300 years of collective work experience with children, youth and families) will help your family to restore a safe and healthy home environment. Centerstone works with your family to create a treatment plan that will get you back on track.

Why Choose Centerstone?

  • Our treatment models are evidence-based. Evidence-based practice is defined by the Institute of Medicine as, “the integration of best research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values.” At Centerstone, we use evidence-based treatment models because we are committed to providing the best possible treatment for our clients. “Evidence-based” means the treatment models we use are proven to be safe and effective.
  • We get results. Centerstone’s FCS program was one of the first programs of its kind to begin performance-based contracting with the state of Tennessee. Performance-based contracting means that in order to continue to work with children, we have to meet certain targets each year. We have met or exceeded our targets every year.
  • Our staff have over 100 years of combined experience. Our caring professionals have a passion for what they do and years of experience dealing with emotionally troubled teens. They are regularly certified by the state of Tennessee and other accrediting bodies.
  • Our programs received the highest level of accreditation from CARF. CARF (the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities) is an independent, nonprofit organization that reviews and grants accreditation services nationally and internationally. Their standards are rigorous so services that meet them are among the best available. In 2010, CARF gave our residential treatment services for children and youth with an exemplary commendation, their highest honor.
