Intensive In-Home Services

Services are geared for individuals ages 5-21 in order to prevent the need for an out-of-home placement such as foster care, psychiatric hospitalization, group home, residential program, correctional placement, and/or to assist with the transition back into the home from any of the aforementioned placements. Traditionally, clients receive 8-10 hours per week (up to 15 in the case of a crisis situation) of evidence-based, solution-focused interventions based on individual strengths and limitations essential to restore the family to an acceptable level of functioning. Services are initiated immediately upon receiving the referral (within 24 hours) and last for approximately 6-9 months. Counselors are available to the clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Treatment is designed to assist the client while maintaining a healthy functioning family system. Generally, services include, but are not limited to:

  • Individualized treatment plans and customized therapeutic interventions collaboratively devised with the individual, guardian, Intensive In-Home worker, and collateral agencies involved in treatment
