In-Home Therapy is a structured, strength-based therapeutic relationship between a Master’s level clinician, a Therapeutic Training and Support person and a youth up to age 21 and their family. It is established to treat the young person’s behavioral health needs, improving the family’s ability to provide effective support to promote healthy functioning.
Interventions are designed to enhance and improve the family’s capacity to improve the youth’s functioning and may prevent the need for inpatient hospitalization or psychiatric residential treatment facility.
The In-Home Therapy team develops a treatment plan and, using established psychotherapeutic techniques and intensive family therapy, strives to:
enhance problem-solving, limit-setting, risk management, safety planning and communication;
build skills to strengthen the family, advance therapeutic goals and improve interaction;
identify and utilize community resources;
develop and maintain natural supports for the family to promote sustainability of treatment gains
In-Home Therapy may be provided in the home, foster home, school, child care center, respite setting and other community settings. Services are delivered by professional providers to support and ensure clinical and psychiatric expertise as well as cultural and linguistic competence.
In-Home Therapy operates seven days per week, 365 days per year. The program has 24-hour urgent response accessible by phone to the youth and family. In the event of an emergency, Mobile Crisis Intervention is available.
