Non-Intensive Community Services
Formerly referred to as CORE services, these are an array of mental health services available for children (4 years and older), adolescents and adults with emotional and behavioral challenges. Non-Intensive Community Services may be initiated by Parents, Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS), School Counselors, Residential Facilities, Care Management Entity, Relatives, Community Partners, etc. Through our diagnostic assessment, which is completed by a multidisciplinary team, a child’s level of care and immediate service needs are determined and they are matched with services that will help them achieve their treatment goals. These services may include:
Provided to children, adolescents, adults and their families who may experience behavioral, emotional and/or substance abuse challenges.
Provided to couples in romantic relationship seeking to gain insights into their relationship, resolve conflict and improve overall relationship satisfaction.
Curriculum-based specialized group counseling for youth and adolescents with behavioral, emotional and/or substance abuse problems.

Intensive Family Intervention (IFI)
This 90-day intensive treatment program couples a team of mental health professionals (one fully licensed team leader and two-three therapists/paraprofessionals) with a client/or family in need of specialized counseling and support services. The IFI service philosophy promotes a client/family focus to evaluate and diffuse crises, link client/family to community services & resources and simultaneously improve clients’ ability to self-regulate/manage while increasing caregivers’ ability to care for their child.
