Addy: Healing Adoptive Families

Chosen's tailored approach heals the whole adoptive family

Traditional parenting methods may not be effective for children with trauma backgrounds. Meanwhile, adoptive parents face unique challenges, with fewer external support systems compared to foster families. Chosen’s Addy Program offers a comprehensive approach for adoptive parents and caregivers seeking to strengthen family bonds and support children with unique needs. The program focuses on understanding the trauma experienced by children, while acknowledging the profound losses they have endured.

Client Outcomes

89%

of youth who experienced a psychiatric stay did not return to the hospital after services.

62%

of children and teens had decreased levels of anxiety after participating in a Chosen program.

TRAUMA-REPONSIVE INTERVENTION

Addy addresses the root causes of mental health struggles.

Instead of focusing solely on diagnosing symptoms, Chosen employs a trauma-responsive approach to prioritize the experiences people have been through and healing the root of those symptoms, much like treating a wound before it becomes infected.

Our focus is on nurturing emotional well-being, leaving scars of resilience rather than unresolved trauma. This strengthens attachments and connections between children and parents and caregivers, reduces stress, mitigates trauma-related behaviors, and prevents hospitalizations and acute mental health crises.
