The Close-to-Home Program is a primarily a foster care based program that provides an array of mental health and family support services in the Isanti County community. Our individualized treatment program focuses on the unique needs of each child, teen and their family, and can build services around a youth’s needs prior to, during, and after foster care placement.

Professional assessment, therapy, crisis response, support, therapeutic milieu, school liaison, healthy childhood opportunities, family connections and foster care support and services are all important elements of our program. The Close-to-Home Program is modeled after 35 years of experience of TSA’s Child and Adolescent Treatment Program in Pine City.

Our foster families are licensed and supported with training and active participation with professionals through the Treatment Team model throughout the youth’s placement experience.

Treatment Team

Care and services are facilitated by each youth’s Treatment Team, which includes their foster parents, mental health professionals and practitioners providing individualized services and their TSA Case Manager. The Treatment Team meets weekly to coordinate treatment progress.

Parents and Referring Workers, Guardian Ad Litems and other significant persons in the youth’s life are included in case planning, treatment focus and progress review by participating in Intakes, Treatment Plan development, progress review, discharge planning.


Group Therapy/Skills Training

One highlight is the group skills sessions. During this structured group session, clients will learn, practice and apply essential social and friendship skills that will be reinforced throughout their experience at TSA.

Groups offered are specific to age, gender, and based on client need. 

Family Involvement

FAMILIES ARE INVITED AND ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE IN FAMILY THERAPY AND/OR SKILLS TRAINING SERVICES WEEKLY. Home visits are an important part of the youth and family’s treatment experience. We enjoy positive relationships with parents/families and respect teens having family connections, relationships and time together. Families are generally encouraged to call their teen, visit, and work closely with the Treatment Team.

TSA supports family reunification when possible and permanency for each teen.

Summer Experiences

TSA has expanded its program opportunities to include a Partial Day Treatment Program during the summer for youth who would benefit from our services but whom do not require foster care placement.  This wonderful Partial Day Treatment opportunity at TSA is designed to provide structure, skill development, and a fun memorable experience.  Youth will participate in programming with an assigned peer group learning how to make friends, get along with others, problem solve, and demonstrate how to make responsible choices.  The Partial Day Treatment includes the milieu experience and group experience.
