One of our service lines is our Intensive In-Home Treatment Team (IIH)
Intensive In-Home is a 3-6 month partnership between our professional three-person mental health team and families to first understand then address troublesome behaviors or psychiatric and emotional problems. In addition to weekly, child, parent, and family-based counseling, IIH teams are on call 24 hours each day to provide assistance in a crisis.
This service is a time-limited intensive family preservation intervention intended to stabilize the living arrangement, promote reunification or prevent the utilization of out-of-home therapeutic resources (i.e., psychiatric hospital, therapeutic foster care, residential treatment facility) for the identified youth through the age of 18.
This service is delivered primarily to children in their family’s home. All treatment must be directed toward the eligible recipient of in-home services. This intervention uses a team approach designed to address the identified needs of children and adolescents who are transitioning from out of home placements or are at risk of out-of-home placement and need intensive interventions to remain stable in the community. Team to family ratio shall not exceed one to eight (1 to 8) for each three-person team.
This population has access to a variety of interventions twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days per week by staff that will maintain contact and intervene as one (1) organizational unit.
We are looking to grow our teams with talented people and achieve great things together!
