Intensive Outpatient Support Services (IOSS)
IOSS is a program designed to provide additional behavioral supports to youth and families in addition to standard therapy. It is referred to as a type of “wrap around service” due to the design of the program to work with, not only the youth, but care providers and other service providers such as teachers, doctors, the Department of Human Services, and natural supports.
The target population is generally youth who display behavior that risks their own, or others safety or stability. For example, if a youth is acting in a way that risks their foster home placement, or is resulting in an inability to maintain attendance in a classroom, or is displaying suicidality, self-injurious behavior, or major depressive symptoms, IOSS is an appropriate referral. IOSS provides skills training, education, and case management support to youth and families, in addition to the therapy they are receiving.
The Acronym changed a few years back from ICTS (Intensive Community Treatment Services) when Lane County developed a program called “Wrap Around” or simply “Wrap”. This program, administered by a Lane County provider called Direction Services, has a focus of creating open communication with the identified child’s “Team” and maintaining a monthly format for communication around focused goals. They also do various case management services for the youth and family.

Because ACT is so adaptable, it can be utilized to address a wide range of needs.
