WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Services are provided in the office setting, home and community for six months or longer depending on the severity of what is going on.

  • The program works with the adult and the family and other people who support the family to decrease symptoms and create a safe and stable home.

  • The adult is an active partners in treatment. This is a key factor in maintaining success after leaving the program.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

  • The clinician and family will discuss safety planning across environments (home, school, community) to reduce risk factors and ensure a safe environment for each youth.

  • A psychiatrist referral can be made, if needed.

  • The care plan or next referral will be discussed with the family and other team members to assure sustainability of treatment successes after the program.
