In Home Therapy Services (IHTS)
In Home Therapy Services (IHTS) is a time-limited service that combines evidence-based therapy services and coordination of care interventions to be provided in the home setting for children and adolescents - ages 3-21 - with complex clinical needs that traditional outpatient cannot adequately address in a time-limited fashion.
For some individuals in high-risk situations, such as families involved in domestic violence or child protective services, traditional outpatient services alone are not sufficient to address the needs and prevent future incidents. The population targeted for this program is children and adolescents in need of individual and family therapy services, as well as coordination of care due to complex psychosocial situations and/or multisystem involvement. These are not individuals whose mental health needs are yet at a severity that is putting them at risk for residential treatment or other forms of out-of-home placement, but rather individuals who need focused family systems work and coordination. Currently, this service is offered in Stanly and Mecklenburg counties.
