Child & Adolescent Services

The Intensive Child and Adolescent Network exists to address the needs of children, up to age 18, and their families with mental illness, substance abuse, behavioral and conduct disorders, family problems, and other issues causing them to have difficulty functioning at home, in school, and/or in the community.

Through collaboration with natural supports and service providers, clients will be assisted to gain skills necessary to progress through life and realize their potential.

Services are provided at four county outpatient clinics, some schools, and sometimes in the homes.

Medicaid, insurance, and a sliding fee are accepted.

ICAN Services

Intensive Child & Adolescent Services include an individualized treatment plan with goals identified by the child and/or his/her parent/guardian. These services may include individual and family therapy, in-school counseling, individual and/or group skill building, and case management. The Child & Adolescent Case Managers work closely with DCS family case managers, probation, schools, and other referral sources to ensure a comprehensive and successful outcome.

Population Served:

Children up to age 18 who score a 3 or higher on the CANS (Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths).

What is Wraparound?

Wraparound is a planning process that follows a series of steps to help families realize and achieve their hopes and dreams.  Wraparound brings together family members as well as those involved with the family to help them reach their goals.  The wraparound program looks a little different for every family because every family has their own unique needs, strengths, and goals.

Through the wraparound process, a family and their team develop, implement, and fine-tune a plan of care that is individualized to achieve positive outcomes for the family.

Wraparound is funded through Medicaid and the Department of Child Services.

Wraparound Principles:

The philosophical principles of wraparound have long provided the basis for understanding this widely-practiced service delivery model.

  • Family voice and choice: the family’s perspective is prioritized and the plan reflects the family’s values and preferences.
  • Team based: wraparound meetings take place with a family team. A family team is made up of family members and those involved in their care (e.g. probation, neighbors, teachers, CPS workers).
  • Natural supports: family team actively seeks out members from personal and community relationships.
  • Collaboration: team members work together and share responsibility for creating, implementing, and monitoring plans.
  •  Strength-based: the wraparound process and plan identifies, builds on, and enhances capabilities, knowledge, skills, and assets of all family members.

Reasons Families Call Wraparound

  • Family members are experiencing mental health or substance abuse problems.
  • Children are having behavioral problems at home, at school, or in the community.
  • Domestic violence situations.
  • Family is adjusting to the death of a family member or divorce.

  • Parents are overwhelmed and don’t know what to do with the children.
