The IDD Dual Diagnosis Program is an intense, time-limited clinical day program for adults with a co-occurring developmental disability and mental illness. We help our consumers manage symptoms of mental illness so that they can make better use of available community resources and live and work in the community with greater independence. The IDD Dual Diagnosis Program offers the following services:

  • Clinical assessments
  • Individualized treatment planning
  • A structured day treatment program
  • Individual and group therapies
  • Medication monitoring

 

We serve adults, ages 18 and over, diagnosed with co-occurring mental illness and one or more of the following:

  • Intellectual Disability
  • Mild Autism or other mild pervasive developmental disorder such as Asperger Disorder, High-functioning Autism, or PDD-NOS.

 

The first step in the application process is to contact the consumerís MHMRA Service Coordinator and request a referral. The referral must include a valid Determination of Mental Retardation (DMR) and current information regarding the consumerís medical condition and behavioral issues. If the consumer does not have a Service Coordinator visit this link to learn how to access MHMRA services.

 

Consumers provide their own transportation. Consumers with special needs for transportation should contact their Service Coordinators to find out if they are eligible for transportation assistance.

 

A financial assessment determines whether co-payments apply and/or if MHMRA is a part of your Insurance Provider Network. Consumers will need spending money for community rehearsal outings.

 

Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. Our goal is to assist in developing coping and self management skills in order to maintain stable behavior in various community settings. One of the most important components of the IDD Dual Diagnosis service is aftercare planning. The goals of aftercare planning are to help our consumers:

  • Make a successful the transition into mainstream community-based services
  • Function successfully in a work, training, educational, and/or home setting
  • Reduce the likelihood of psychiatric hospitalization
