Home & Community Treatment

Woodfords’ Home & Community Treatment (HCT) program embraces the concept of consumer and family-centered planning and treatment, recognize that all children and families have strengths that can help them get through difficult times. Trained staff work with the family to use these strengths to implement plans for lasting change.

Services include treatment for children and youth living with their families, and also may include children and youth who are not currently living with a parent or guardian. Services are tailored to the family structure, including blended, foster and adoptive families.

HCT is an intensive team-delivered service consisting of a Clinician and Behavioral Health Professional (BHP) who work in the child or youth’s home and in community settings for several hours each week. This is a unique program in Maine that includes psychiatry and behavior analyst consultation and support. The HCT service may include one or more of the following types of interventions:

  • Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
  • Complex Grief Therapy
  • Modular Approach to Therapy for Children with anxiety, depression, trauma or conduct problems
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Social Thinking
