Intellectual Developmental Disability
We provide services to adults with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (IDD) and co-occurring behavioral health conditions who are referred by the San Diego Regional Center. All services are funded by the San Diego Regional Center.
Our Intellectual Development Disability services consist of our Advance Programs, which are a mobile crisis intervention.
Crisis Residential Home
The crisis residential home is a community-based, non-locked home-like setting. It is a step-down level of care from locked Adult Developmental Centers and provides comprehensive residential behavioral health services designed to prepare adults with developmental disabilities and mental illness to live successfully in the community. Our caring and well-trained staff serve up to four residents for three to eighteen months with the goal of transitioning them back into the community and the least restrictive environment.
Services include applied behavior analysis, communication skills, individual mental health counseling, on-site medication support, recreation, socialization, and peer support. Staff assist residents to identify their strengths, motivating factors, treatment goals, and coping skills to help build independence and self-care.

Mobile Crisis Intervention
The mobile crisis intervention teams assist clients to maintain their current housing and avoid placement in a higher level of care. Services focus on resolving the current crisis and assisting the client to improve social skills, independence, and stabilization to live successfully in the community. All treatment plans are person-centered and individualized to address the needs of each client. Our caring and well-trained staff assist clients in establishing a productive and satisfying life, while using evidence-based practices to address behaviors that interfere with community living. The staff regularly collaborate and coordinate care with other support systems including family, Independent Living programs, Group Home managers, and Case Managers.
Individuals who are consumers of the San Diego Regional Center, who have a serious psychiatric condition and who may also have co-occurring substance-related disorders.
