Community Reintegration Services
Behavioral Health Services for Teens
Cummins' mission is “To improve the lives of those we serve by
providing exemplary behavioral health services.” Because children and
adolescents face issues unique to their ages and stages of development, Cummins
has developed programs that specifically focus on these unique needs.
Comprehensive assessment and evaluation assist youth and
their identified family in establishing a community-based system of care.
Individualized strength-based service recognizes the unique strengths, needs
and desires of the child/adolescent and his/her family in collaboration with
the interdisciplinary treatment team. Services are community-based, building
on strengths, natural supports, and resources of the family. The goal of
child and adolescent services is to improve functioning in the areas of
home, school, and community.
Individual and family service is provided in natural
environments including the home, schools and physicians offices to meet the
needs of those served. Community-based services are provided by child and
family therapists and are generally short-term in nature. Long-term
therapeutic treatment is available when needed.
Cummins provides professional consultation and a variety of
educational programs to staff at various community-based agencies and
Cummins’ psychiatrists offer assessment, evaluation and
monitoring of psychotropic medications for youth.
Individual, group and family therapy sessions are available
with trained child and family therapists.
Care coordinators provide home and community-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
child’s/adolescent’s and his/her family’s ability to improve skills in the
areas of problem solving, conflict resolution, communication, leisure, and
other activities of daily living.
This highly structured program incorporates a successful
blend of intense outpatient treatment methods and the freedom to continue
everyday functions, for example going to school and living at home. The
program focuses on both mental health and substance abuse issues. Family
participation and involvement is an integral part of the program. The
daytime and evening programs require participants to attend a three-hour
group therapy meeting three times per week for four weeks or longer if
The Intensive Outpatient Youth Program
addresses behavioral, emotional, and substance related issues. Family
participation and involvement is strongly recommended. The program meets
for three hours per session three times each week for an average of four weeks.
