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