RI Community Mental Health Services

Devereux’s Outpatient Services includes:

  • Counseling Services for individuals, couples, and families
  • Home based Services through our Strengthening Families Program

We serve children, adolescents, adults and families in need of behavioral health care. Our clients come from a wide range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds and varied family histories. They may have suffered many different types of traumatic experiences, and we use a trauma-focused approach to determine the most effective treatment for each person’s specific needs.

Our goal is to offer resources to strengthen individuals and families.  We endeavor to stabilize the family situation so children may remain in their homes while getting care for their emotional and behavioral disorders.

If a child has required out of home placement, we aim to reunite them with their families as quickly as possible and smooth the transition back to the home setting.

We offer instruction and guidance from experienced clinical practitioners who are able to offer the highest level of care and support.

Individual, couple, family or group counseling may occur in the home, in the counseling office or at school. We offer flexibility to meet the specific needs of those we serve.

Enhanced Outpatient Services (EOS)

Our Strengthening Families program is a nationally recognized, best practice approach that offers intensive care to families in crisis. Our clinicians base their work within the home to help families develop six protective risk factors. These protective factors are to:

  • Improve parent resilience
  • Increase knowledge of parenting and child development
  • Develop and ensure concrete support in times of need
  • Enhance parent/child relationships
  • Ensure children’s healthy social and emotional development
  • Identify and maintain social connections/supports
