Service DescriptionNew Hope Family Services is a CARF-Accredited behavior health service for at-risk young people and their families. Established in 2002 as a residential treatment facility, our program has since evolved to include family treatment through a service called Intensive Family Intervention (IFI). Our mission is to help children, adolescents and their families learn new behaviors, make better choices and internalize positive change.
WHAT WE DO
Under the supervision of a Licensed Professional, a team of 2-3 Mental Health Specialists provide community based therapy and support services to children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral problems. Services are primarily provided in the home, school or community. The team is available to the family 24 hours/7days per week on-call for emergency crisis intervention.
The goal of the program is to modify the negative behaviors of at-risk youth to achieve more positive outcomes. This goal is accomplished by crisis intervention and skill building, involving the family in the youth's treatment. In addition, we broaden the continuum of care so that children are able to avoid the trauma and stigma associated with psychiatric hospitalization or residential treatment.
ExperienceOur agency has been providing Behavior health services to at-risk youth and their families for over 9 years. Our staff consists of the following:
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist- 20 years in practice
2 Master's Level Behavior Specialists
