Community Residential Rehabilitation—Intensive Treatment Program (CRR-ITP) is the most intensive level of care provided by CSG. This program is designed for children with extensive, severe emotional and behavioral problems. Treatment is individualized and incorporates child and family strengths, and follows CSG's treatment principles of recovery and resiliency and trauma-informed care. Evidenced-based therapy and interventions are utilized, most notably Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). Active family involvement is essential and required during treatment as the time the child spends in the CRR-ITP program is limited to a maximum of 9 months. Only one child will be placed within the Provider family at a time so that the highly trained Provider Parents can mentor the natural family throughout the child's treatment; a Mental Health Professional and Case Manager support the child, natural family, and provider family as well. CRR-ITP is funded through managed care organizations.

CRR-HH Treatment

Community Residential Rehabilitation—Host Home (CRR-HH) is an intensive level of care provided by CSG and designed for children with severe emotional or behavioral problems.
