Lakemary developed the Intensive Behavioral Supports (IBS) Program in 2010. This newly created program was designed for children whose treatment needs were even greater than those that could normally be accommodated in a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF). These high needs youth can now be served in a PRTF setting, receiving one-on-one 24/7 specialized supports to learn the basic skills necessary for success in transitioning to a less restrictive PRTF environment. Lakemary's IBS program is now being modeled by other agency providers throughout Kansas and the Midwest. This program has allowed Lakemary to reach some of Kansas' highest needs children sooner providing new opportunities to reduce the level of supports that will be needed into adulthood.
