Behavioral Health Rehabilitative Services
Commonly referred to as "wraparound" services, this service is prescribed for children who are experiencing significant behavioral and emotional difficulties within the home, school, and/or community environment. BHRS is a treatment option more intensive than traditional outpatient counseling and typically involves a therapeutic team working with a child or adolescent along with his/her parent(s) or guardian(s). BHRS treatment also includes working closely with other services which serve the child (ex: school, daycare, psychiatrist/pediatrician).
Children on the Autism Spectrum are treated by individuals within our BHRS program who have specialized training in evidence based treatments for autism. The Behavioral Specialists assigned to treat autistic children are all licensed mental health professionals.
Individual Outpatient Therapy
We offer outpatient therapy options for children and adults at our office in Oil City.
Behavioral Support for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities
Behavioral support services for adults (21 years and older) who have intellectual or developmental disabilities. This is a separate service from our BHRS (children and adolescents) program. Behavioral Support consists of a functional behavioral assessment, the development of strategies to support the individual, and the provision of training to individual, support staff, parents and/or caregivers. The behavioral support services offered through North Star are performed by a licensed, Master’s Level Behavioral Specialist.
Parent Support Seminars
Offered on a regular basis, these seminars are designed to encourage parents to share their experiences and breakthroughs. Content related to childhood and family mental health and recommended therapeutic interventions are provided by special guest speakers along with our professional staff members.
