KVC helps children and families in their natural environments rather than in an office because research shows it is more effective. Now, in addition to receiving therapy and other support in their own homes, many children are beginning to receive vital help at school.
KVC Kentucky will soon begin providing clinical services, including group and individual therapy for students, targeting problem areas identified by school staff. A KVC clinician will be assigned to each school and will regularly spend time with students and school personnel.
KVC is also expanding its participation in the Kentucky Kids Recovery Program, providing alcohol and substance abuse assessments for students identified as at-risk of substance abuse disorders. This on-site service will lead to early identification and treatment for students who may not otherwise receive services.
