In-home therapists work with youth and caregivers in the home and community to strengthen family structures and support.
IHT clinicians remain in frequent contact with other providers and may participate in IEP meetings, care plan team meetings, residential discharge meetings, etc.
IHT is an intensive service, but treatment goals and the intensity of the service are tailored to meet the individual needs of each family.
IHT may support families in discovering how to:
- Resolve conflicts
- Improve communication
- Anticipate and plan for crisis
- Learn new ways to do things
- Make new routines
- Set limits
- Identify and use natural supports
- Find community resources
In-Home Therapy is available to children and adolescents who:
- Are under the age of 21.
- Have a comprehensive behavioral health assessment inclusive of the CANS that indicates medical necessity for this level of care.
- Reside in a home environment (e.g. with birth family, foster care, kinship etc) and have at least one caregiver willing to participate.
- Have needs that require more intensive intervention than outpatient level of care may provide.
- Are members of Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership, Network Health, or Neighborhood Health Plan.
