IFFT is generally covered by most insurance plans

"We were at a point where we felt lost and everything was out of control. We struggled with regaining balance in our household and with trying to effectively parent a child who self-harms. This program has been better than we could have ever imagined. We are working hard and making progress little by little. When we go through challenging weeks/days, we finally have the support we need to navigate those waters."
