Community-Based

Print

Y.O.U., Inc.’s Community-Based Services component brings innovative therapeutic and prevention programs to children and famiies in their home communities – a cost-effective approach that brings treatment to clients in the environments that are most comfortable for them. Our programs encourage families to make strong  connections with natural supports in their community -- such as churches and advocacy groups -- which can help to ensure their continued success once treatment is complete.

Our community-based services range from therapeutic after-school and in-home therapy, to intensive foster care and alternative programs for juvenile offenders. The Community-Based Services team brings a wealth of experience in dealing with substance abuse and behavioral disorders, family conflict, and teen pregnancy to the clients and families they serve.
