The Home Based Services (HB) program is designed to provide an integrated approach to working with families with a child or adolescent who has a serious emotional disturbance (SED) diagnosis. The HB program is also designed to ensure that children with (SED) conditions receive culturally competent treatment that is intensive, and clinically appropriate in amount, scope and duration. The services to be provided will be adjusted to meet the needs of the (SED) child/adolescent and their family to prevent out of home placement due to their behavior, emotional disturbance, substance use, mental illness and/or developmental disability. The HB program offers an array of services which include but are not limited to: Community Living Supports, Respite, Treatment Groups and referrals for additional groups within the community.
