Flexible Integrated Treatment (FIT) Children's and Young Adults' Services

Colby Arguelles, Program Director

Sacramento County

We often meet families when they are feeling especially vulnerable, yet they allow us into their homes and lives with the hope that we can help. It is our duty to honor the trust they place in us by providing a service that is worthy of that trust.
— Diana White, Chief Operations Officer

Flexible Integrated Treatment (FIT) works with youth up to the age of 21 on Medi-cal who are experiencing emotional and behavioral difficulties. Therapists and treatment team members work with youth and their families in a family-focused, strength-based approach. The same primary therapist will stay involved with the family's services throughout the entire course of treatment.

Clinical supports offered through FIT will adapt to the needs of the youth. The program provides individual, family, and group therapy, skills training, advocacy, case management, and psychiatric supports.

Evidence-based practices include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Parent-Child Interaction Therapy
  • Incredible Years Parenting Groups

Treatment decisions are made in partnership with the youth and family through a Child and Family Team meeting process. Families are encouraged to include other natural and professional support persons in their treatment planning. Interventions and additional services are responsive to the unique needs of the youth and family.
