Family Relations Policy – Sharing Your Concerns or Compliments
CTN and all our network partners are dedicated to providing families with high-quality services and excellent service experiences. Your feedback helps us to address any concerns and issues that you may have. Your input also helps us continually improve network practices so we can heighten our ability to meet the needs of the kids and families we serve.
If you have a question, concern or complaint, we encourage you to speak to your clinician, Single Plan of Care Coordinator, Team Lead or Local Team Facilitator right away so they can help to address it. If you are uncomfortable speaking with a staff member, or feel your situation requires further attention, please fill out a Family Relations Form and submit it directly to CTN.

Social Media Policy
Children’s Treatment Network believes participation in online communities can promote better communication and engagement between families and the Network. A team of parents and professionals developed a Social Media Policy that provides us with guidelines for using social media safely and responsibly to help families increase their access to information and support and provide opportunities for everyone across the Network to share knowledge and connect with each other. This policy was foundational for creating the Network’s Family Forum on Facebook and will guide future social media initiatives.
