Children’s Intensive Outpatient Treatment (WISe)

Children’s Intensive Outpatient Services supports children and their families in their community in a least restrictive environment using the Wraparound process.

Wraparound works to honor the family voice and choice, identify strengths, build natural supports and foster self-sufficiency.  Wraparound teams provide comprehensive behavioral health services and supports to Medicaid eligible individuals, up to 21 years of age, with complex behavioral health needs and their families.  The goal of the program is for eligible youth to live and thrive in their homes and communities, as well as to avoid or reduce disruptive out-of-home placements.  Assessment, treatment and support services are provided in the youth and family’s natural setting, where needs and challenges present themselves (such as the home, school and community).

  • 24/7 crisis response and outreach
  • Monthly (minimum) wraparound  team meetings involving  the family and all system partners who are involved with the family

We have adapted the Core Principles of Wraparound based on the National Wraparound Initiative.

Camp Outside the Box

Up to 120 youth from our WISe Program take part in “Camp Outside the Box" throughout the summer. Camp Outside the Box is only offered to youth enrolled in the WISe Program. The activities of camp are beneficial to their treatment, as they provide learning opportunities and address peer relationship building, communication-skills, pro-social behaviors, and self-esteem. Our camp, like our program, is therapeutic and strength-based. Our staff is experienced with the level of care needed to support our youth.
