The Alameda County In-Home Stabilization Program provides outcome focused, short term (up to 12 weeks) intensive, individualized, home- and community-based therapeutic services that take into account the specific cultural and language needs of the participant and the family.
The primary emphasis is on preserving the family and home environment to prevent the placement of a youth in a group home or other higher level facility through providing immediate treatment and ongoing support. The program uses a wraparound philosophy, providing 24-7 crisis call availability. The foundation of In-Home services is in using innovative strategies to minimize safety risks while increasing participants’ safety, hope, resiliency, and the ability to problem solve. The program also works to link youth and children to existing services within the county and to refer them to longer term services when necessary.
3 – 20 year-olds that are wards of the Alameda County Court and have full-scope Alameda County Medi-Cal. Children and youth that are seriously emotionally disturbed and at risk for psychiatric hospitalization or have been recently hospitalized. Youth can also be experiencing a crisis at home and/or at risk of losing their home or foster placement. Youth released from psychiatric hospitalization at Willow Rock but without the involvement of social services or probation are also eligible.
For more information or if you are a Alameda County Child Welfare Worker or Juvenile Probation Officer and wish to make a referral, please contact Max Antor, MFT at 510-773-9520.
