The Healthy Families Program is here to prevent abuse, neglect, and harm to children under 3 years old. This program is for at-risk parents and starts with a complete risk review and a plan of action. Plans usually include direct assistance to parents to help them with positive development for their children, and health, education, and support services to help parents become healthy and positive caregivers and nurturers for their children.
This program is for families that are required to have supervised visits with their children. We want to make sure that all families can maintain regular, quality contact with their children. We also want to make sure that children and their families, guardians or other significant others in their life have a strong plan for reuniting – and enjoy a sense of family identity. The program also includes options for other permanent plans for children if required.
We offer a wide range of services in our overall Children’s Mobile Response and Stabilization Services (CMRSS). These services are available and staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When a child or teen is in crisis, we aim to send social workers or other support personnel immediately to help. This service is an in-home intervention and aims to stabilize and diffuse a crisis for families that request it. This service is not a replacement for police intervention to prevent further violence or a replacement for psychiatric hospitalization. We recommend in case of severe emergencies, call 911.
The RIPTIDE Program is for advanced or more-dangerous drug, alcohol, or other substance use issues for adolescents and teens. This program is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and gives patients a lot of time with social workers, reviewers, and healthcare professionals. Because this program usually involves young patients who cannot remain in school during their intensive treatment, schooling and other education services are provided to the student patient.
The SAIL Program helps adolescents 13-18 years old who may need out-of-home services or placement because of their behavioral or emotional issues. The program offers a wide range of services that help young patients with daily life skills, regular review of their behavioral and emotional situation, watching their medication, crisis intervention, recreation, counseling and social skills. The program also offers meals and transportation.
Peer leadership training is about engaging and empowering participants to find, seek, and develop solutions to problems that they see in and among their social groups, including issues that they individually experience. Leadership, true leadership, comes in many forms, and allowing participants to understand and see these forms of peer leadership with their colleagues, social circle, and others can lead to better balanced lives and more empowered futures.
