In-Home Residential is an alternative/modified approach to out-of-home placement or more restrictive treatment environment.


We are committed to providing community based options for the treatment of children with severe mental illness who require highly structured, intensive treatment.

Our belief is that intensive structured services provided in the home increase the potential for a successful outcome.

Four Phase Approach

Phase I | Assessment and Orientation

 In phase one an overview of the program is provided to both the referring agent and potential client/family. A commitment to the proposed services is established and a pre-test to determine current functional level is administered.


Phase II | Implementation of Treatment

 In phase two the Family/Individual Service Plan (FISP) is developed in conjunction with client/family to identify treatment goals and appropriate evidence based interventions to ensure the highest opportunity for success.


Phase III | Maintenance

 One of the major goals of phase three is to empower the family. Using a strength-based approach, the client/family is educated on strategies that will assist them in addressing the complex needs and connections to the community.


Phase IV | Discharge

 Within phase four the client/family is able to effectively navigate support resources and implement skills to effectively maintain/generalize change.

A post-test is administered to determine the client’s/family’s level of functioning


Treatment Components

I.H.R.S. is a highly structured evidence-based treatment intervention that focuses on child/family stabilization. This program utilizes therapeutic approaches designed to strengthen coping skills and improve child/family functioning (e.g. CBT, Functional Family approach, Psycho-Ed, Case Management and Intensive Supervision).

A comprehensive team approach is utilized. The treatment team is comprised of the case manager (referring agent), treatment providers, other involved professionals as well as the child and family. This approach allows for maximum flexibility in treatment to respond to the many challenges faced by the family and promotes active participation.

The program places a strong emphasis on a treatment team/family approach.
