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 you need.
