Follow Along/After Care Services
Devereux provides intensive home-based family interventions and supports to youth and families in preparation for their return to the community or home. These services can begin 30 days prior to discharge and continue for 3 months after discharge to ensure a successful transition back to the community.
Follow Along/After Care services are designed to:
While the child is still living at the residential or group home program, intensive home-based treatment will take place during homes visits (between 1 and 3 sessions per week). Starting with preparing the child for the transition, Follow Along Services address any barriers to reunification and help translate what worked well in the residential or group home program to what will work well in the community.
After the child has moved home, services continue with home visits by our professional staff for up to 3 months.

Devereux’s professional staff are available for assistance 24 hours per day, 7 days a week during the Follow Along service period. The professional team consists of:
Continuity of Care
Follow Along planning begins at the onset of placement. In order to ensure continuity of care, the Follow Along team is integrated into the residential and/or group home services and is familiar with the youth and Family. This team continues working with the youth and family in their transition back to the community.
