Behavioral Services

Connections in Ohio has the expertise to meet the needs of individuals who are considered high risk, or who have been a part of the judicial system. Our service delivery systems, team structure and staff training make it possible to meet the needs of very ‘challenging’ people.

behavioralWe have been selected to support individuals with mental health diagnoses, including borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia and anxiety disorders. We support people with criminal backgrounds, individuals who have been probated to institutions and those who have become too difficult to be supported in their family home. Our formula for success includes:

  • Highly structured routines
  • A collaborative relationship with our team of professionals and the family
  • Comprehensive staff training regarding the individual’s needs and program plan

Our employees receive behavior management training through the Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI). This is the same training used by the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and meets all regulations and rules. All Connections in Ohio employees are initially certified in CPI, and receive an annual refresher course to maintain their certification.

This is an excellent foundation of skills that provide our staff with the tools they need to provide a therapeutic environment for all persons served. Most importantly, Connections in Ohio has multiple “in-house” CPI trainers, which affords our staff with excellent classroom and in-home behavior management training, which translates into stability and great outcomes for all individuals we support.

The Connections in Ohio Difference

During the last 15 years, we’ve developed service offerings that ensure quality and consistency in the care we provide. We have a full-time clinical department to assist and monitor the health and medical needs of all the individuals we serve. Our two on-staff registered nurses (RN) provide certified nursing support when needed. We also employ an expert staff with specialized training in intense behavioral programming, which ensures the safety of all individuals involved.

Our directors implement regular on-site training, delivering feedback regarding service provision and health and safety oversight. Our resource department provides management training, specialized training, and systems oversight to all our teams, including:

  • Bi-weekly new employee orientation training
  • Ongoing training for our direct support staff
  • In-house certified CPI trainers

In addition, our business department works to perform background screening and secure all required documentation of new employees. This screening includes national background checks, nursing and abuser registry checks, motor vehicle checks and general reference checks.
