Intensive Behavioral Health Services

For youth ages 3-21

What is it?

Our IBHS program provides individualized, community-based services for children and adolescents experiencing serious emotional or behavioral issues. 

In our IBHS program, we provide Individual Services, Group Services, and Evidenced-Based Treatment.  Group Services can be provided in a school, community, or community-like setting.

Program Details


A licensed practitioner evaluates the child's or adolescent's need for services.

Individualized Treatment Plan

IBHS services are tailored to the unique strengths and needs of each child or adolescent by providing therapeutic interventions wherever needed, in the home, school, or community.


A Care Coordinator regularly communicates and coordinates with all systems of care involved with the child's or adolescent's treatment. The Care Coordinator serves as a liaison with the managed care organization to ensure that the appropriate levels of care are being provided.


These services are funded by Medical Assistance. If you do not have Medical Assistance, we will help you obtain it. Eligibility is determined by medical necessity and not financial resources. Eligibility may extend to age 21 for those who are still in school.

Additional Treatment & Support Staff

Behavioral Consultant (BC)

A mental health professional who designs effective behavioral interventions in collaboration with all individuals involved with the child or adolescent and their family. The BC develops and helps implement the treatment plan, supervises the treatment team and links the individual and family with helpful services.

Mobile Therapist (MT)

A mental health professional who provides therapy sessions involving the child or adolescent, family or other caregivers.  The MT provides individual and family psychotherapy, addresses challenges the child or adolescent encounters, and assists with crisis stabilization. 

Behavioral Health Technician (BHT)

A trained staff member who implements the Individualized Treatment Plan interventions. The primary approach is through transfer of skills to everyone involved.

Who should be involved?

In addition to the above individuals, both the child/adolescent and the caregiver(s) are responsible for being active participants in the youth’s recovery. They are encouraged to be responsible for the development of their Individual Treatment Plan; our team is available to support and assist them in their efforts.

Because it truly does take a village to raise a child, we encourage close involvement in the treatment process with all important sources of support for the child or adolescent. This includes the father, mother, role models of both genders, caregivers, friends, and members of the family’s spiritual community.
