Intellectual Disability Services
Intellectual Disability Treatment & Case Management
Intellectual disability treatment services include a psychosocial rehabilitation day program for individuals who experience the effects of mental illness, substance use, or co-occurring disorders. Emphasis is placed on the development of individuals’ skills and their ability to function as independently as possible within their community.

Service options also include day-support, service-structured programs of training, assistance, and specialized supervision. These programs support adults with developmental disabilities in the acquisition, retention, or improvement of self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills. They complement intellectual disability treatment services and are provided to groups or individuals in nonresidential, community-based settings.
The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) dates back to 1987. It was developed to ensure that individuals residing in nursing facilities receive quality care and have access to specialized services that normally are not provided in a nursing facility. OBRA provides specialized services to individuals with mental illness, intellectual disability, or related conditions (developmental disability) who live in nursing facilities across the Commonwealth.
