“Without the Institute, our boys would certainly be on the streets by now and headed for a life in and out of juvenile detention and later, prison.”
– Gary, Client/Parent
We understand that quality treatment for reactive attachment disorder is often under-funded. Here are funding ideas from other families who have placed their children in our program:
1. We raise funds each year to provide needy families with assistance. Unfortunately, the need is great and our fundraising monies deplete quickly.
2. Post-adoption subsidy programs exist in every state for adopted children. Each state administers the program but utilizes federal funds for the adoption subsidies:
- Some states provide adoptive families wonderful post-adoption support while other families have to overcome hurdles to secure funding.
- California post-adoption programs have been the most supportive in sending children to our program due to our success rates. In addition, our service fees compete with other treatment facilities in California.
- In Colorado, select county human service departments have paid for treatment in the past when a parent has connected with an influential person within the agency.
3. Some parents have insurance that cover our treatments. When insurance companies deny payment, parents have contested in the past.
- Most insurance companies only pay for part of the clinical services we provide (i.e. psychiatric services and therapy).
- Most of our treatment is provided by professional treatment families and our clients live with them for an extended period of time. Residential treatment has not proven effective with reactive attachment disorder. Unfortunately, treatment family fees typically do not fit within insurance companies narrow definition of “residential treatment”. Our costs are actually much lower than residential treatment facilities, however.
4. Churches and other philanthropist organizations have helped individual families in the past.
5. Some families have taken out loans to cover their children’s treatment costs.
