Scope of Service

The Scope of NICH Services

Youth and families enrolled in NICH are assigned a NICH interventionist who will provide them with services for approximately 12 months, depending on the family and the circumstances surrounding the youth's health. NICH interventionists are in frequent (in some cases daily) contact with families during the initial stages of treatment and are available to families 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Interventionists provide services in the hospital, in clinic, at the youth's home, over the phone, and over the computer (via email and video chat). In order to maximize service provision and minimize costs, communicative technology is used whenever and wherever possible.
