Community Reintegration Services
With the ever increasing strain on school budgets
and the unique issues that children and adolescents face today, Cummins offers
school-based behavioral heath services that are delivered in the school setting.
Because children and adolescents face issues unique to their ages and stages of
development, Cummins has developed programs that can be provided in the school
that specifically focus on these unique needs.
Comprehensive assessments and evaluations assist
youth and their identified family in establishing a school-based system of care.
Individualized strengths-based services recognize the unique strengths, needs,
and desires of the child/adolescent and his/her family in collaboration with the
interdisciplinary treatment team. Assessments are performed in the school.
Cummins offers a variety of therapeutic and skill
building groups that include, but are not limited to the following topics:
self-esteem, drugs & alcohol, tobacco, relationships, assertiveness, depression,
impulse control, social skill building, and anger management.
Care coordinators provide home and school-based
case management and skill building services to children, adolescents, and their
families. Case management services include assessing, coordinating, linking and
accessing resources. Skill building services focus on increasing the childís /
adolescentís and his/her familyís ability to improve skills in the areas of
problem solving, conflict resolution, communication, focusing skills, leisure,
and other activities of daily living. These services can be provided in the
actual classroom setting with no disturbance to the class.
This highly structured
program incorporates a successful blend of intense outpatient group treatment
methods. The program focuses on both mental health and substance abuse issues.
Family participation and involvement is an integral part of the program. This
program is similar to other group services but is of greater intensity. These
groups are longer (2-3 hours per day) and are held more frequently (2-4 days per
