Youth & Family Services


A Typical Day at ITS

Intensive Treatment Services (ITS) provides male and female youth ages 8 to 18 with a structured, supportive and safe place to receive mental health treatment services.

The length of stay, treatment areas, and desired outcomes vary for each youth. However, all share a common aspiration of building skills and reaching goals integral to success at home and in the community. The focus of treatment is tailored specifically to each youth’s needs. Treatment focus may include mood and behavior regulation, social skills and family centered therapy. Family involvement is highly valued as youth work collaboratively with families, counselors and additional supports to build skills and positive relationships.

Trust, teamwork, and problem solving skills are integrated by both staff and peers alike to foster a positive, safe and supportive environment aimed at assisting each youth in reaching their highest potential.
