Is your adoptive child exhibiting any of the following behaviors?

  • Frequent running away

  • Sexualized behavior

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

  • Aggressive/assaultive behavior

  • Oppositional/defiant behavior

  • Self-injurious behavior

  • One or more hospitalizations in a Mental Health facility

  • Substance use disorder

  • Fire starter

  • Minor criminal behavior

  • School behavior/truancy problems

  • Beyond control of parents and/or primary care adults

  • Mild Developmental disorder not recognized by a Regional Center

If so, the REACH program can connect adoptive families to services that can help.  Some of the services available to your family include Therapeutic Behavior Services (TBS) and Kern County Wraparound. TBS is available for eligible children who need short-term behavioral support in addition to any other mental health services they are receiving. The goal is to help children avoid being placed in a higher level of care, such as residential treatment, or to help children make a successful move to a lower level of care, such as returning home after residential treatment. TBS focuses on changing a child’s behavior while emphasizing the child’s strengths and works in collaboration with the child, caregivers and primary mental health provider. TBS referrals are generated through a child’s mental health therapist.

Kern County Wraparound provides high-risk youth and their families an alternative to group home care.  Wraparound is a family-centered, strength-based, needs-driven philosophy promoting the reestablishment of at-risk youth and families into community support systems.

If your family is in need of support in accessing TBS or Wraparound services, please call our office at 661-323-1233.
