Systemic, Therapeutic, Assessment, Respite and Treatment: In 2011, Ädelbrook began providing START informed services. START is an evidence-based model of community based crisis prevention and intervention services, that works to strengthen efficiencies and service outcomes for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and behavioral health needs in the community. Through START informed services we provide comprehensive assessment of clinical and servicing needs and provide cross systems crisis planning for the individual and their family. Clinicians collaborate with family members, service providers, schools and caregivers regarding treatment plans for the individual with a strong emphasis on crisis prevention and utilization of natural supports. With expertise in current best practices, our START Coordinators provide linkages for the individual and family and serves to facilitate fluid communication, ongoing planning and interventions, and 24/7 crisis support.
