IIC- INTENSIVE IN COMMUNITY BEHAVIORAL SUPPORTS

 

Caring For Families Social Services has partnered with the New Jersey Children's System of Care (CSOC) as a Contracted System Administrator (CSA) to provide behavioral assistance for your child. We are committed to helping children with behavioral, mental health, or emotional challenges gain access to the services they need. 

The New Jersey Children's System of Care (CSOC) is a division of the Department of Children and Families that provides an array of integrated and trauma-informed supports and services to youth with behavioral health challenges, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and/or substance use needs.

The intent of this service is to provide the clinical intervention and support necessary to successfully maintain each child in his or her home or community.  The goal is to provide a degree of clinical care and supervision in the home and community setting that is appropriate to children discharged from a more restrictive setting (e.g., residential, psychiatric hospitalization), or as an alternative to a more restrictive setting. All treatment, care and support services must be provided in a context that is child-centered, family-focused, strength-based, culturally-competent and responsive to each child’s psychosocial, developmental, and treatment care needs. 

Youth who are eligible for services through PerformCare are primarily between the ages of 5 and 21 (up to his or her 21st birthday), reside in the State of New Jersey and have an emotional or serious mental health or behavioral need. Special consideration for services is given to children under the age five.

A team of highly dedicated licensed clinical therapists and certified behavioral assistants are matched with families and youth who request services and work to help them meet their individualized goals.  Service plans are developed with the family and youth to ensure that goals are measurable, short-term and solution-focused. 

Our clinicians have expertise in various areas such as: ​

  • Trauma-Focused CBT & Trauma-Informed Care

  • Substance Use

  • Family Systems

  • Adoption

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

  • Developmental Disabilities
