We believe that all persons, regardless of their abilities or disabilities, can benefit from an environment that meets and supports their individual social, emotional, cognitive, physical, developmental and medical needs.
The Milieu Center opened its doors to the public in December 2007. Since then, we have more than doubled the number of clients that we serve. Our program is a day treatment program for adults ages 18-59 that are dually-diagnosed with a mental illness and intellectual disability.
We promote the principles of "normalization" and "least restrictive environment" by teaching the skills and abilities needed to successfully reside in the community and work in an area of personal choice. We strongly value the inclusion and empowerment of individuals with disabilities.
The goal of our program is to assist the client in reaching and maintaining their highest level of functioning and independence. This goal is accomplished through assessment and developing individual therapy goals. Our program provides a variety of daily groups that focus on reading and math skills, activities of daily living, positive leisure exploration, vocational training and practical experience to assist the client in meeting their individual therapy goals.
