These award winning community based programs are designed to offer home-based therapy to children, adolescents and families. The goal of Community Based Psychiatry is to help families make positive behavioral changes and preserve the family structure.
Community Based Psychiatry is comprised of four programs: Multi-Systemic Therapy (MST) (specializing in youth with legal troubles), Early Childhood Intensive Family Therapy (ECIFT) (specializing in infant psychiatry), Intensive Family Therapy (IFT) (specializing in youth with mental health issures) and Rapid Response (RR) (supporting youth transitioning from hospital placement back into the home).
- Community based therapist work with families to make positive changes for success in school, home and the community.
- The goal of all community based work is the management of behaviors to prevent out of home placement in psychiatric hospitals, detention centers, or foster care.
- Out interventions are designed to assist parents with increasing supervision of the youth and involve multiple "stakeholders" including: school, work, probation / diversion, social services, mental health clinicians, peers, church, and any other identifiable positive relationships.
- It is a brief treatment (3 to 6 months) that has intense contact (6 to 12 hours per week) with families.
- We provide follow-up care on a no-fee basis, to our former clients, depending on need and clinical appropriateness.
