About Our Behavior Support Care Program

Learn about our behavior support care program at Millcreek of Magee Treatment Center in Mississippi

Having an intellectual disability and/or a developmental delay does not mean that you should not be able to live a full and active life. With supportive and caring relationships, the challenging behaviors that may occur among individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities can be reduced; however, there are still going to be times when these behaviors will arise.  When they do, it is important to seek out behavioral support at a treatment facility that focuses on improving one’s overall quality of life, as well as a reduction of problematic behaviors.
