Tamarack views the family as a key member of our treatment team. You know your child better than anyone, and it is important that we gain the insights and experiences you have with your child and incorporate those into our treatment plan. Parents have their own section on your child’s treatment plan to ensure that your voice is being heard and that your opinions are being recognized. Each resident is assigned a Family Specialist at the time of admission; this staff follows the child till discharge. This gives the parents a point of contact regarding the child and their progress.
