What Is Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS)?
Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) is a short-term program that focuses on changing a child’s behavior, while emphasizing the child’s strength. It is available for eligible children who are in jeopardy of being placed in a residential treatment facility or a high-level group home or who are returning home from such a placement.
Our TBS Aides at Changing Turn work in collaboration with the child, the child’s caregivers and the primary mental health provider to address behavioral challenges that jeopardize the child’s ability to remain in his or her current home or placement.
We provide TBS services in the child’s home and other environments where the child’s behaviors occur. We service children, youth, and families in the following counties within Maryland: Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Harford County and Cecil County
TBS services are billable through medical assistance.
