Providing Specialized Counseling and Psychiatric Care for Individuals with Co-Occurring Developmental/Intellectual Disabilities
Seven Hills has a long history of providing integrated treatment for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (ID/DD) and co-occurring mental health/psychiatric conditions. Our Home-Based Counseling Program is operated by Seven Hills Behavioral Health, which is CARF-accredited and licensed by the State of Massachusetts as a Community Mental Health Center and Outpatient Substance Abuse and Opioid Treatement Provider. Support is available through our various day, residential, and community-based programs.
Home-Based Counseling (HBC) is managed by an interdisciplinary team of professionals who all have extensive experience, including Physicians, Nurse Prescribers, and Master's and Doctoral-level clinicians. HBC is a specialized program that focuses on supporting individuals with co-occurring ID/DD and mental health disorders, many of whom also have complex medical needs. All of our professionals also have extensive experience providing individualized psychotherapy, behavioral consultation, and a full range of psychological and psychiatric services. Individuals may be referred to HBC for personal, home, school, or work-related challenges.
Typical counseling concerns often include:
- social-skills development
- relationship formation and sexuality issues
The Seven Hills Home-Based Counseling Program seeks to overcome one of the primary obstacles to accessing services by providing extensive outreach from all of our mental health sites. We provide services in the individual’s home, school, day program, and other community settings in a confidential and respectful manner.
