Community-Based Rehabilitation Services (CBRS)

CenterPointe has been innovative in developing a model program for Children’s Community-Based Rehabilitation, and we remain dedicated to contributing further research in this area. CBRS services provide practical techniques and education to guide our clients and their families toward functioning independently. We develop and teach skills specific to promoting positive mental and behavioral growth.

CenterPointe provides CBRS services through Idaho Medicaid to children and youths through the age of 17.

Areas of skill development may include:

  • Social (for example, initiating conversations, listening, and building positive relationships)
  • Coping with Mental Illness (learning about their illness and how to handle the symptoms and social stigmas)
  • Community/Legal (learning to use community resources and plan healthy activities)
  • Family (becoming a problem-solver within the family)
  • Basic Living Skills (grooming and hygiene, setting short and long-term goals)
  • Emotions (anger and stress management, learning about emotions and how to use them effectively)

Y.E.S. Respite Care

When you need a break…..respite is there to help

Caring for a child with behavioral health needs can be demanding. Sometimes you need a break for a few hours, to give yourself time to relax, run errands, or catch up on things. Take a break.

Children’s individual respite care provides caregivers with a planned “short break” from caring for their child and provides a positive experience for the child.  Children’s respite care is an important resource for families that have extra caregiving demands and is viewed as a positive support to enable parents and families to catch up with work at home and spend time with other members of the family.  Using respite care before you become exhausted, isolated, or overwhelmed is ideal, but just anticipating regular relief can become a lifesaver.
