Individualized Community Supports And Services For Adults And Children Through The Stand Alone Behavior Supports Program (DDD), (IIH Clinical), (I/D & DD): Stand Alone Behavioral Supports (SABS) are time-limited direct services provided to restore an individual’s mental health and/or behavioral issues to a pre-crisis baseline level that allows the person to remain in his or her current living arrangement and/or employment/day support. Stand Alone Behavioral Supports may be provided to individuals who are exhibiting behaviors as defined in Residential Supports Behavioral Levels 3-4. Supports may include one on one supervision, redirection and personal controls.
Intensive In-Home Community Services/IIH Clinical (IIC): In-home services are provided on an outreach basis to work with individuals and their families in the home and community. They are designed to avert treatment in residential or inpatient settings or to facilitate the earlier return of individuals receiving inpatient or residential care. Services are multi-faceted and include therapy, supportive counseling, skills training and facilitation of access to other needed services and supports. Some in-home approaches are limited to short-term, intensive approaches with the goal of stabilizing and connecting the individual and family with ongoing services within a few weeks. We also provide longer-term interventions with the service intensity varying with clinical needs.
