Intensive Home-Based Services is a coordinated program for Summit County youth with severe emotional problems. The goal of treatment is to help youth avoid out-of-home placements such as inpatient hospitalization or residential treatment.

Also, CG&FS offers an Integrated Co-Occurring Home-Based Treatment program that serves youth who have both substance abuse and serious emotional problems. Youth may also have substance use concerns. 

What You Can Expect with Intensive Home-Based Services

  • Family-focused, strength-based and culturally sensitive treatment
  • Services provided in the convenience of the youth’s environment, allowing the therapist to work with the most challenging behaviors as they occur
  • 3-5 hours of service per week
  • Three to six months of treatment, as determined by the youth’s needs
