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.
Early Childhood Therapy
We specialize in supporting small children (ages 0-5) and their families who struggle with emotional and behavioral disturbances caused by mental health disorders, neurological vulnerabilities, and traumatic experiences, including abuse, neglect, exposure to domestic violence, exposure to drugs or alcohol, disrupted attachments to adults, and significant changes in the family.
Services may be in our Mendota Heights office or Savage preschool location, in-home, or via telehealth depending on the family’s needs. Early childhood programs include:
- Outpatient Therapy
- Trauma Informed Play Therapy
- Parent-Child Therapy

Family Response & Stabilization Services
We provide immediate, in-person support and stabilization for youth ages 5-18 and their parents/caregivers in Hennepin County. Learn more about our Family Response & Stabilization Services.
(Ages 6-17 and adults)
Nexus-FACTS is now providing comprehensive and individualized psychological testing to youth ages 6-18 and adults. The testing includes a wide variety of psychological assessments, such as diagnostic evaluations, ADHD assessments, personality, and cognitive evaluations.
Psychological tests and other assessment tools are designed to measure and observe a client's behavior to arrive at a diagnosis and guide treatment. This process also provides information to the individual, family members, teachers, doctors, social workers, mental health professionals, and other care team members, to support and help that individual improve their functioning.
Psychological testing might be recommended to you if you or your child are having problems at work or school, or in personal relationships.
The first meeting is an intake session that lasts one hour. During this session, the provider gathers information, determines the type of assessment needed, and addresses any questions or concerns the client may present. Psychological testing occurs during the second appointment. This may vary for each client based on tests administered but typically ranges from 2-4 hours. The final session that occurs a few weeks after the second appointment is when the provider reviews findings and report with the client.
Our services can address issues arising from complex trauma as well. EMDR and TF-CBT are also available.
