Wellness Quadrants

The Wellness Quadrants are both the conceptual foundation of Family Restoration Services and its trademark approach to integrated wellness.


Each quadrant represents an area of well-being. Fitness maintains and strengthens the body. Cognition orders the mind to better direct the body. Nutrition sustains and builds the body. Spirituality calms the body and lifts the mind. Taken together the quadrants interact each with the others to produce an emotionally balanced healthy life. To learn more please watch the video.

FRS uses multiple physical and recreational outlets to curb negative behaviors and attitudes in youth. Sports and recreational programs are used prescriptively to address symptoms of behavioral, mood, substance abuse and cognitive disorders. FRS implores an ever expanding offering of community based options to reduce reliance on psychotropic medications and improve social relations with peers and family. These include but are not limited to:

  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Bowling
  • Boxing-“School of Hard Knocks”
  • Cheer and Dance
  • Football
  • Golf
  • Gymnastics
  • Martial Arts
  • Physical fitness training
  • Skateboarding and BMX
  • Soccer
  • Swimming and
  • Track


All sporting activities work from an individualized wellness and recovery service plan, (IWRP), which focuses on emotional well-being, substance use, physical fitness, peer and adult relations, improved academic performance, nutritional planning and community engagement. Positive outcomes of this therapeutic, recreational model include increased cognitive ability, greater attention spans, improved communication and social skills, improved problem solving, improved self-esteem, confidence, efficacy and control, improved physical health and fitness.

Cognition Quadrant

FRS uses multiple treatment options to support the healthy cognitive functioning of its youth and adult participants. FRS uses prescriptive play and exercise, nutritional planning, bibliotherapy, cognitive behavioral treatment techniques and substance abuse counseling to change negative thinking, improve judgment, decision making and brain functioning for all. The following services:

  • Family Support Services
  • Holistic Substance Solutions
  • Parent Support Services
  • Positive Behavior Supports and
  • Vocational Training Services

customizes this approach to stabilize youth in their own homes and communities. Youth and families are assisted to learn alternative ways to manage conflict, stress, anxiety and emotionality by learning new, rational responses and gaining positive outlooks on their future. These interventions help to restructure organic processes behind irrational thoughts and actions to develop more solution focused responses. In addition, families learn specific skills, they can use for the rest of their lives, that recognizes distorted thinking, and encourages realistic exchanges with others, resulting in immediate and long term behavioral success.

Spirituality Quadrant

FRS embraces spirituality as a reflection of the process of change, to gain better emotional control and to address drug use and other illicit behaviors. FRS supports spiritual awareness by assisting youth to find meaning and direction in their lives. FRS supports youth through their personal journeys to nurture feelings of belonging or connectedness; and their quest for wholeness, hope and harmony. FRS offers several therapeutic solutions that support youth to seek healing from a source that is not physical. These include:

  • Art therapy
  • Gardening
  • Instrument Instruction
  • Monthly community service activities (through its nonprofit arm-F.O.O.T)
  • Music studio recording
  • Music therapy
  • Scrapbooking and
  • Video recording

to facilitate a greater connection between the youth, their inner feelings and emotional responses and subsequently with others in the community. FRS also offers youth opportunities to participate in the meditative practice of Yoga. Here, youth learn to self-regulate more effectively in the present. Youth learn to accept love, peace and understanding through pursuit of their own Personal Legends.

Nutrition Quadrant

FRS focuses on the relationship between food choice, mental health functioning and substance use for all its youth and family participants. The Community Learning Garden was created to teach youth how eating healthy supports emotional stability and improved health. Additionally, each youth participant is afforded monthly opportunities to visit the Garden with their counselors. There, each youth experiences the therapeutic value of gardening by nurturing live plants and produce. FRS counselors provide monthly nutritional facts and healthy recipes to promote health and wellness to all youth and their families. FRS currently offers:

  • The Community Learning Garden
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • Nutritional assessments
  • Nutritional planning and
  • monitoring

A certified nutritionist is available when poor diet is found to significantly impact the mental or physical health of the youth.
