IDCC has been helping individuals with behavioral, mental, or emotional health issues for more than 20 years. Our highly skilled and experienced clinicians have expertise in delivering care to those in recovery and provide support at every step of the journey. Clinicians can also provide Home and Community Based Services (HCBS), which help individuals with severe mental illness achieve life goals such as employment, school, or other areas of their life.

HCBS offers the following program

HABILITATION: Is designed to assist participants in acquiring, retaining and improving skills such as communication, self-help, domestic, health care, self-care, socialization,motor skills, mobility, personal adjustments, relationship development and use of community sources. This service will help participants to develop skills necessary for community living and as applicable, to continue the process of recovery.

EMPOWERMENT SERVICES – PEER SUPPORT: Includes, non-clinical, interim home visits after hospitalization, advocacy, outreach and engagement and companionship.
