Helping Children and Families Grow Together.
Is it a phase or is it time to get help? We understand that life brings real challenges, and sometimes children act out at school, home or in the community. Issues like abuse, conflict, drugs or loss can lead to emotional or behavioral problems—sometimes severe. Where do you get help, and what kind of help do you need?
No two children or families are the same. That is why CHR offers a full range of treatment options from office based intervention to "in home" programs.
We begin with a thorough assessment, listening to the needs of both the child and the family. Our experienced therapists and caring staff then help families determine treatment goals and create a specialized care plan, celebrating progress along the way.
Every day, we see positive outcomes unfold. Children discover ways to cope with difficult issues, strengthen relationships and succeed in school. Families learn how to communicate again. And new beginnings are within reach.
CHR’s range of services include:
