Collaborate Intensive Bridging Services (CIBS)
Our Collaborate Intensive Bridging Services is based on the concept that a child is best treated with their family in the home. This treatment model involves a combination of intensive in-home therapy and a brief placement in an intensive treatment center. Best suited for youth 8-17 with aggression/fighting, self-harm, depression, truancy, theft, and more.
Our program is designed to help:
- Stabilize the child’s behavior so they can live at home and access community-based services.
- Equip parents to support their child and the rest of the family.
- Improve the family’s ability to manage a crisis.
- Streamline services and minimize the confusion of having multiple service providers across differing stages of treatment.
Families in this program experience a three-part approach, over the course of six to nine months:
First, we provide therapy to the child and family in their home or another community setting to help prepare them for residential treatment.
While the child is in a residential treatment placement (usually for 30–45 days), we provide in-home therapy to support and equip the family.
And finally, after the child returns home, we continue to provide in-home therapy to the child and family, to support a smooth transition and ongoing success.
Parents who choose to participate must be willing to stay involved with their child’s treatment program—and with their own therapy as well. This includes engaging with their child during their residential treatment (calls, home visits, therapy sessions, etc.) and participating in in-home therapy before, during, and after the stay.
