Intensive Home-Based Treatment (IHBT) is a behavioral health service designed to meet the needs of youth 12-17 years old who are at risk of out-of-home placement – such as inpatient hospitalization or residential treatment – or who are returning from placement.

This program provides intensive treatment services targeted at problem behaviors, emotional difficulties, and relationship issues at home and in the community.

The goal of IHBT is to provide support and integrated behavioral health services through reduction on intensity in emotional symptoms and stressors for the youth and the family, as well as strengthening interpersonal success and coping skills to help them stay in the home successfully.
