Intensive Treatment Services in New Hampshire provide person-centered assessment, coordination and treatment, necessary to meet the needs of individuals who demonstrate complex and high-risk behaviors. This allows greater opportunities for individuals to lead safer and more fulfilling lives by becoming responsible, accountable, and productive citizens. The guiding principles for this service include a focus on Evidence Based Practices, Rehabilitation, and Systems Coordination across treatment needs.
In the service delivery system of the State of New Hampshire, an “Intensive Treatment Service (ITS) Program” is a program that serves individuals with histories of high risk behaviors, i.e. having a history of or currently demonstrating offending behaviors (such as fire setting, sexual offending, problematic sexual behavior, or violence) or extensive involvement in the criminal justice system. ITS programs provide a combination of intensive treatment, enhanced supervision, and environmental modifications designed to minimize risk, and provide individualized, state-of-the-art treatment. These combine in a comprehensive and coordinated effort to assist individuals in overcoming their high risk behaviors, so they can lead richer and more fulfilling lives as non-offenders.
ITS programs are a cooperative effort between vendors, area agencies, BDS and other support providers within the state. Programs are designed to serve those individuals who are eligible for services under Medicaid’s Home and Community Based Care Waiver, and meet certain admission criteria.
