These are some of the most common questions we are asked. If you have a question about our services please contact us.
Behavioral services for children are very different than services for adults. Here are some guidelines to help you understand what to expect — we know it can be a difficult and emotional process to seek help, so please let us know what we can do!
- A teacher, medical provider, or other professional may refer you to Youth Dynamics for assistance. Or you can contact us directly for help! Please call 1-877-458-7022 or visit our locations page to connect with an office near you.
- You will talk to your local area manager who will get to know you and your family and will walk you through filling out an intake packet. At this time, you’ll learn more about the services we offer. All of our services are covered by Healthy Montana Kids (formerly CHIP) and HMK Plus (formerly called Children’s Medicaid). We accept many types of commercial insurance and offer sliding fee scale for uninsured. For more information, please see financial assistance.
- Next, a therapist will meet with the child and family (as appropriate) to do an “assessment.” This will take about an hour and is what the therapist uses to make recommendations for the services most appropriate for your child’s at this time.
- After the assessment, you may begin working with Youth Dynamics and will have specialized, highly-trained team working with your child and family.
There are many problems we have see in children. Among them are:
acting out problems with authority
difficulty in school difficulty with peers
poor attention span anger
nightmares wetting the bed
sadness no plans for the future
thoughts of doing harm to themselves
We also provide many treatment resources for children who have been affected by abuse, neglect, and/or trauma.Youth Dynamics also offers treatment programs for other behavioral issues, including substance abuse and children with issues related to sexual abuse and highly-sexualized behavior.
Youth Dynamics accepts HMK Plus (Medicaid), HMK (CHIP), some private insurance plans, and offers a sliding fee scale option for some families. See financial assistance for more information.
Behavioral health services include mental and emotional health treatment. Our approach is to work with children on specific behavioral problems, while also addressing emotional issues, ways of thinking, and decision making. We also offer specialized services, such as substance abuse treatment and independent living skills.
