Family therapy is facilitated by a therapist, sometimes with the entire family group and sometimes with individuals. Family therapy helps family members improve their understanding of and the ways in which they respond to one another. This type of therapy can resolve patterns of behavior that might lead to more severe mental illness. It can also help educate individuals about the nature of mental disorders and teach them skills to better cope with the effects of having a family member with a mental illness (e.g. dealing with feelings of anger or guilt). Services can be provided in office on in your home.
Group therapy services use cognitive behavioral or supportive therapy interventions to assist the client in feeling connected to others in the community with similar presenting issues by participating in therapy in a group setting up to 15 people.
Child therapy services assist children aged 6-17 through a variety of engaging activities to establish communication with the therapist and resolve problems. Therapists work with the child to express emotions and problems that would be too difficult to discuss without assistance. Services can be offered in office or at your home.

Psychosocial rehabilitation services (PSR) are intended to restore the client’s skills and abilities essential for independent living. Activities include: development and maintenance of necessary daily living skills; food planning and preparation; money management; maintenance of the living environment; and training in appropriate use of community services. This service combines daily medication use, independent living and social skills training, housing services, prevocational and transitional employment rehabilitation training, social support, and network enhancement to recipients and their families.
Services assist with implementing interventions on a treatment plan to compensate for, or eliminate, functional deficits and interpersonal and/or behavioral health barriers associated with the client’s behavioral health needs. Activities are “hands on” and task oriented, intended to achieve the identified goals or objectives as set forth in the client’s individualized treatment plan. These services must include assisting the patient to develop and apply skills in natural settings. The client must have a diagnosis to receive this service. Psychosocial rehabilitation services may be provided in a facility, home, or community setting and can also be completed in a group setting up to 12 people or individually.
Therapeutic Behavioral On-Site Services (6-20 years old)

These services are coordinated through individualized treatment teams and are designed to assist recipients and their families. Therapeutic behavioral on-site services are intended to maintain the recipient in the home. Services are limited to recipients under the age of 21 years meeting specific eligibility criteria.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Northeast Family Services provides the option of telehealth services when appropriate. Telehealth allows clients to connect with mental health professionals remotely using HIPPA compliant video platforms. Telehealth/telemedicine is the use of computers, smartphones, tablets, etc. to allow patients to connect remotely with their providers. Telehealth is beneficial for a variety of reasons including: social distancing, no commuting to office, and less time off from work. Telehealth is not best practice for patients experiencing suicidal/homicidal ideation.
