Intensive In-Home Services
There is compelling evidence that a large number of youths with a variety of mental disorders, including ADHD, are not being served, are inadequately served, or are inappropriately served in communities across the country (Surgeon General's Report on Mental Health, 2001; Jensen et al., 1999; MTA, 1999). The Executive Summary on Mental Health: Culture, Race and Ethnicity, a Supplement to the Surgeon General's Report (2001) indicates that 75-80 percent of children and youths with mental health illnesses do not receive needed services.
This service is for individuals ages 4-18 years of age. It incorporates family and the community to meet the child's growth and development needs.The services are performed at the youth's home, community, and less restrictive environments, with the goal of avoiding out-of-home placement.
Therapeutic Alliance Intensive Inhome Counseling Services (IIH) targets children and adolescents that are at-risk for removal from the home due to behavioral, mental health or substance abuse problems. Additionally, children and adolescents who are transitioning home from an out-of-home placement such as foster care, detention, or residential programs may be appropriate for services.
