Embark Behavioral Health provides healing and nurturing in-home therapy to help your teen or young adult child address and overcome the mental health or substance use issues that are impacting your family's everyday life.

Embark's in-home therapeutic services provide consistent, structured care for teenagers and their families in a home environment, at school, or in a safe place in your community – where licensed clinicians conduct therapy sessions with both your child and family in a more relaxed setting – rather than in a typical therapist's office setting.

The goal of in-home therapy services is to improve your child’s ability to better function in the community and at home, in an effort to eliminate potential out-of-home placements, such as hospitalization or mental health services like residential treatment. Or, to help your teen daughter or son when transitioning home from an out-of-home program.

Embark offers a support system designed to help teens and young adults maintain their mental health as they experience life changes and struggle to deal with a variety of behavioral and emotional challenges. 

We can be of value by providing community resources and home health care to families to reduce out-of-home placements for treatment or by helping your child transition home from an out-of-home program.
