Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS)

BHRS has been replaced by Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS).

IBHS support children, youth, and young adults with mental, emotional, and behavioral health needs. IBHS offers a wide array of services that meet the needs of these individuals in their homes, schools, and communities.

IBHS has three categories of service:
1) Individual services which provide services to one child;
2) Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) which is a specific behavioral approach to services; and
3) Group services which are most often provided to multiple children at a specific place. Evidence-based treatment (EBT) can be delivered through individual services, ABA services, and group services.

Lenape Valley Foundation’s Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) (formerly BHRS) are medically prescribed and individualized services designed to provide a broad network of support for families of children, youth and young adults, age 3 to 21, who struggle with mental and behavioral health challenges. IBHS are delivered by a team of skilled specialists using a trauma informed approach with therapeutic interventions and supports to reduce and manage symptomology.  Services are prescribed based on the needs of the child, youth, young adult and family.

Working within the home, school, office, and community, the IBHS team of psychologists, behavioral consultants, mobile therapists, Therapeutic Staff Support, and Behavior Health Technician’s support children, youth and young adults to help increase family stability while also managing identified behavioral challenges. The goal of IBHS is to help the family create a positive, supportive, and stable environment that will enable the child/adolescent to receive the most out of any clinical care they may be receiving and develop positive behavior management strategies that will allow each child/adolescent to reach their full potential.

Payment for IBHS services are made through Pennsylvania’s Health Choices (MA) program.  If needed, Lenape Valley Foundation will support families in securing MA for their child to help access IBHS services.

Your child or adolescent can be referred through a Written Order from a licensed professional. For more information on access to services, please contact Lenape Valley Foundation’s IBHS department at 267-893-5241.
