Alameda County In-Home Stabilization offers short-term, intensive home-based therapeutic services for youth, ages 3 to 20 and their families. By providing immediate treatment and ongoing support, including individual and family counseling, case management and 24-7 crisis call availability for up to six months, the program aims to prevent the need for placement of youth in group homes or higher-level facilities, preserving the family and home environment. The In-Home program uses innovative strategies to minimize safety risks while increasing the youth’s hope, resilience and problem-solving capabilities.
These services are provided for wards of Alameda County Court who have full-scope Alameda County Medi-Cal and youth who are seriously emotionally disturbed and are either at-risk for psychiatric hospitalization or have recently been hospitalized. Youth released from psychiatric hospitalization at Willow Rock who are not on probation or receiving social services are also eligible.
