Synopsis: This study utilizes data from 341 children who participated in a longitudinal evaluation of a multi-site wraparound services program in Massachusetts. This study examines the in-program and post-discharge costs associated with three discharge categories (Graduated, Withdrawn, Placed Out of Home) from a wraparound services program. Results indicated differences in inpatient utilization, emergency services, diversionary services, outpatient services, and psychiatric medication utilization as functions of enrollment and discharge status. Group differences and costs associated with each type of behavioral health service are discussed.
