Our Services

This may include Intensive Family Intervention services, Tier 2-Core Services (individual and/or family counseling, case management, CSI, groups and behavioral management). NHBC may refer to another agency for services that NHBC may not offer or provide.  Either way, the consumers’ needs will be in the forefront of suggested services.

The levels of care recommended to a client or individual served are determined by a multidisciplinary team that includes a psychiatrist, a nurse, licensed counselors, master level clinicians and certified addiction counselors.

Comprehensive Child & Family Assessments

New Heights Behavioral Consultants, LLC (NHBC), is a certified Comprehensive Child and Family Assessment (CCFA) independent provider for all 159 counties in Georgia. Our agency contracts with the State of Georgia to assure that every child initially entering the foster care system is assessed and receives appropriate services to ensure successful outcomes.

A CCFA is a formal assessment initiated soon after a child enters the care of the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS).  Family Assessments are the foundation of the family case plan and will also assist judges, CASA’s, Citizen Panels, and other providers working with the child and family to gain a better understanding of the family unit.  The assessment is completed within 30 days of the referral, after which the recommendations from the assessment are presented to DFCS and all other parties involved.

CCFAs were initiated in 1998 as an approach to reforming Georgia’s foster care system. The process was developed and instituted by the Georgia Department of Human Resources, Division of Family and Children Services. The purpose of the CCFA is to improve service outcomes for children and families, to ensure appropriate placement, provide stability and expedite permanency for children in care, to promote parental involvement and responsibility, and to increase foster home capacity.

Individual & Family Counseling

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING
Individual counseling is an opportunity to receive support and experience growth during a challenging time in life. Counseling can be effective in helping a person deal with personal issues such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, marriage and relationship challenges, parenting problems, school difficulties and career changes.

COUPLES COUNSELING
All couples experience periodic ups and downs, conflicts and misunderstandings. Often couples are able to work through the differences and move on. But sometimes, conflicts remain unresolved and frustration mounts. This is when couples counseling can be of help. Couples counseling often assist clients in verbalizing their expectations of one another, defining and clarifying their wants and preferences, and working through the everyday problems confronted by even the healthiest couples.

FAMILY COUNSELING
Family counseling can take a variety of forms. Sometimes it is best to see an entire family together for a few sessions. At other times it may be better to see children and their parents separately. Whatever the format, the goal of family counseling is to identify the dynamics that cause problems and to institute changes in the structure or style of how the family operates.
