The Regional Intervention Program, RIP, is a parenting program that has been teaching discipline techniques to help preschoolers and their families since 1969. RIP serves families with young children under the age of 6 years old who have mild to severe behavior problems, including those with special needs. RIP is a free program, but adult family members pay with their time, energy, and commitment by helping to support and train new families. A parent or legal guardian must commit to participate in the program alongside the child. The program is two times a week for two hours, and will take six-nine months to complete the program. The family must reside in the county or surrounding county of a RIP site in Tennessee.
