In-home therapy (IHT)

In-home help for families

Our in-home therapy (IHT)* services help families with a child or teen who is dealing with behavioral health (mental health and/or substance use) issues. Instead of standard outpatient therapy, IHT services are delivered by one or more members of a team and can take place in your home, your child’s school, or another setting. IHT allows families to try out new skills where problems can occur (such as in the home or school).

The IHT team will work with you, your child, and your family to develop a treatment plan focused on:

  • Setting limits
  • Improving family communication
  • Changing problem patterns
  • Preventing behavioral health crises

We will provide IHT for as long as it takes to stabilize your child's condition. We will also make sure your family gets any necessary support services they need.

How to get IHT services

You do not need prior authorization for IHT. For more information or to ask for IHT services, please call one of our behavioral health care managers at 888.257.1985 (TTY: 711), Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To find an IHT service provider in your area, please see our In-home therapy (IHT) provider guide.

*IHT services replace Family Stabilization Team (FST) services.
