Integrated Interventions Opens a Traditional Residential Level of Care Option in New Braunfels, TX
Integrated Interventions is a premier transition program for young adults 17 and older in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and New Braunfels, Texas. Integrated Interventions is known for its unique approach to custom-fit treatment, and is now branching out to include a traditional residential level of care in conjunction with custom-designed independent living.
Integrated is recognized as one of the fastest-growing programs in the country due to their success and unique approach to “traditional” transition treatment. Integrated Interventions offers mentoring services, as well as independent and transitional housing based on the needs of the young adult, or “student” (as they are referred to in the Integrated program). Integrated utilizes custom-fit care for their student population, with each individual on their own path to recovery and independence.
Identifying a student population that would benefit from the additional coordinated support of a residential treatment model, Integrated Interventions sought to broaden their independent-living skills program to better accommodate individual students in need of this type of structure and care. In 2022, their traditional residential level of care model debuted in one of Integrated Intervention’s homes in New Braunfels, Texas. The house currently holds females 17 and older, with the plan to open an additional home for similar aged males in the coming year.
Integrated Interventions’ approach to the residential level of care combines the best parts of a traditional residential treatment center and adds in the unique programming of Integrated Interventions. This blend of programming provides students with the group living environment and direct clinical support of a traditional Residential Treatment Center. It also allows for one-on-one mentoring, parallel Integrated programming, community integration and group therapy alongside a format where students are not punitively punished for setbacks. Rather, a student’s progress is based on a format grounded in natural progression and personal accomplishment.
“The Integrated model challenges the ‘institutionalization’ that can come with a traditional residential setting. While the students are provided structure, 24/7 access to staff, and guidance along the way, they are taught to perform basic functions and daily living tasks such as cooking meals, cleaning up around the home, and taking their own medications on time. Further, they are taught how to complete tasks around the property such as gardening and working with tools. These are skills that they will ultimately take with them into the community as they find employment and work towards transitioning to one of the independent living homes when they are ready.”- Onsite Program Therapist, Lauryn Maldonado, LMSW
The Integrated team works diligently to help students learn the life skills and achieve the educational goals required for sustainable independence. Integrated Interventions commitment to custom-fit programming continues to evolve to meet the needs of a diverse student population and their families. The goal of Integrated Interventions is to be the final step on a therapeutic placement journey that many students have been on for years.
