Intensive In-Home Services



Intensive In-Home services consist of an intensive family preservation intervention intended to stabilize the living environment, promote reunification of the family and/or prevent out of home placement of the child or adolescent. Individual therapy is provided to increase the person’s capacity to handle emotions, make decisions, monitor safety, and reach future goals.  Additionally, intensive family work is a pivotal component of our model in order to support caregivers, improve family interactions, and increase overall family functioning.  Relational patterns are explored and improved through intensive family treatment, enabling caregivers to be more responsive.
