Children’s Therapy Services
SalusCare’s Children’s Therapy Services offers Outpatient Therapy and Therapeutic Behavioral On-Site Services (TBOS) provided by clinicians who specialize in the treatment of children and adolescents. Services offered include assessments, individual, family and group therapy on at least a weekly basis. CTS clinicians will collaborate with your child’s other providers (psychiatrist, case manager, school, etc.), creating a team approach to treatment. The initial Care Connection appointment includes assessment and collaborative planning for services. Some of the CTS clinicians provide both Outpatient Therapy and TBOS services so that children who need to transition their level of care do not have to change therapists. To make a referral, a Care Connection appointment or to receive further information, please either complete the online referral or Care Connection forms, or call us at (239) 275-3222.
Children, teens and their families who are experiencing challenges with their emotional or behavioral functioning or with substance use may access individual, family or group therapy or a combination of the three. Groups are offered for different age groups to address social skills, emotional regulation, anger management, and intervention for adolescents and substance use treatment. The goal of therapy is to work collaboratively, as a team, to achieve positive supportive relationships, improved functioning and enhanced ability to cope with life stress. Outpatient Therapy is provided at the Evans, Ortiz, and Cape Coral Campus, or by tele-health depending on insurance.
Therapeutic Behavioral On-Site Services (TBOS)
TBOS provides evidence-based mental health services to children and their families. It includes therapy for the individual child/adolescent and their family to teach problem-solving skills, behavior strategies, anger management skills, social skills training and parenting skills. Services are provided in the home or community on a twice weekly basis. Generally, TBOS is an intensive, short-term service lasting three to six months for children and adolescents experiencing more significant challenges in their functioning at school and at home.
Community Family Response Team (CFRT)
The Community Family Response Team (CFRT) is designed to serve children and their families who are experiencing increased stressors as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic and is a collaborative program through Lee County Schools and SalusCare. Families are referred by the Lee County School District after the school mental health team identifies that the family would benefit from CFRT services due to increased mental health, substance use and access to community resources needs. CFRT provides family assessments, individual and family therapy, and internal and external referrals for additional mental health or substance use treatment, and access to community resources for housing, employment resources, financial resources, medical resources and other resources as identified in the family service plan. Services are provided at an outpatient level of care and can be provided in the home, community, office or school based settings. Each family is assigned to a CFRT team consisting of a Family Clinician and a Resource Specialist. The team will also collaborate with other service and treatment providers with appropriate consents from the family.
Children’s Case Management
Provided for children, and their families, diagnosed with a serious emotional disturbance to assist in linking to community resources and coordination of mental health services.
