Intensive In Home Counseling consists of family-focused, strength-based family therapy in the home and community for children/adolescents with serious emotional disturbances, several behavioral disorders, or substance abuse problems and their families. A therapist works closely with all involved systems (social services, schools, court services, health care providers, etc.) to provide the appropriate assistance.
