School Based Services


SAP is part of a multidisciplinary school team that works closely with school employees to identify students who are exhibiting “at risk” behaviors. The goal of the Student Assistance Program (SAP) is to identify barriers and help students overcome these issues to achieve academic success. These include, but are not limited to: behavioral health concerns, family related difficulties and/or alcohol, tobacco and other drug use.

The SAP team works with the student team to foster a system of early identification, intervention, and prevention by connecting students and their families to a variety of behavioral health services, school support groups, and other community resources as needed. Our liaisons strive to provide professional, courteous, and confidential support to all students and their families.


School-based services are provided during the school day, in a private and professional setting within your child’s school as if the student were receiving services in a standard office setting. The therapist will work with parents, school personnel and other services involved with the student to ensure continuity of care.
