How We Can Help:
ProFamily, LLC is an approved IFI (Intensive Family Intervention) through Georgia Medicaid. IFI is a service intended to improve family functioning by arrangement, promoting reunification or preventing the utilization of out of home therapeutic venues (i.e. psychiatric hospital, therapeutic foster care, psychiatric residential treatment facilities, or therapeutic residential intervention services) for the identified youth. Services are delivered utilizing a team approach and are provided primarily to youth in their living arrangement and within the family system. Services promote a family-based focus in order to:
- Defuse the current behavioral health crisis, evaluate its nature and intervene to reduce the likelihood of a recurrence.
- Ensure linkage to needed community services and resources; and
- Improve the individual child’s/adolescent’s ability to self-recognize and self-manage behavioral health issues, as well as the parents’/responsible caregivers’ capacity to care for their children.
Services should include crisis intervention, intensive supporting resources management, individual and/or family counseling/training, and other rehabilitative supports to prevent the need for out-of- home placement or other more intensive/restrictive services. Services are based upon a comprehensive, individualized assessment and are directed towards the identified youth and his or her behavioral health needs/strengths and goals as identified in the Individualized Resiliency Plan.
