Intensive In-Home 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).
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. This population has access to a variety of interventions twenty four hours a day, seven days per week by staff that will maintain contact and intervene as one organizational unit.
Team services are individually designed for each family, in full partnership with the family, to minimize intrusion, and maximize independence. Services are generally more intensive at the beginning of treatment and decrease over time as the youth and family's coping skills develop.
The team services are structured and delivered face-to-face to provide support and guidance in all areas of functional domains; adaptive, communication, psychosocial, problem solving, behavior management, etc.
