Interventions | Individual

Intensive Home-Based Treatment (IHBT) providers take a lead role in facilitating the coordination of formal and informal services and supports, as guided by the youth and family.

IHBT Service Progression and Processes should begin with high intensity Engagement and Assessment with the youth, family, and collaborative partners. That should be followed by the creation of a Crisis Stabilization and Safety Plan and Assessments.

Next, the introduction of high to medium intensity treatments. These should be evidenced-based individual and family treatments and supports that include skill building, skill consolidation, and generalization. During this time, it is vital to nurture an enhancement of a positive support network that can assist and contribute to the individual’s continued and sustaining recovery.

This is (eventually) followed by the preparation of continuing care and support needs as the need for treatment intensity decreases. This will include solidifying continuing care and support needs, providing linkages, closures, and follow-ups with an increased reliance on informal supports.

ONE OF THE CONTINUING aspects of the individual youth’s intervention will be ongoing assessments, notably – as treatment progresses – in contextual functioning.
