Members 18 and over are exempt from the family participation requirement. Families of members that have been placed out of state for behavioral health treatment may not be able to attend family therapy each week but should remain active in the member's treatment by telephone and attendance for family therapy at least once a month.
(c) Documented evidence must exist that the treatment program is trauma-informed.
