Intensive In-Home Counseling

Counseling for Children

Intensive In-Home (IIH) counseling is a service for children and adolescents who are at risk of an out of home placement, or transitioning back into the home following a psychiatric hospitalization or other out of home placement.  Individuals receiving IIH counseling often have severe behavioral issues affecting their ability to function in school, at home, and in the community.  Your counselor will provide individual and family counseling, case management, and support services in the child’s residence.  At least one parent must be a willing participant.  Most individuals wishing to participate in IIH counseling must first have a VICAP assessment, unless certain criteria are met.  Please contact us for more information on VICAP assessments.

Paying for this Service

This service is paid for by a participant’s medicaid insurance.  Self- pay is also an option, please call our office for more information.
