Treatment for Intellectual Disabilities

When children and adolescents are confronted with the challenges that surround the presence of intellectual and developmental disabilities, they oftentimes require an intensive level of treatment programs that will enable them to develop the skills they need to successfully navigate through life. At Millcreek of Magee, a treatment facility in Mississippi, we recognize the nature of the concerns that can arise when children and adolescents are struggling to gain a sense of control over their independence while battling against the trials that can come from the presence of intellectual and developmental disabilities. For this reason, we offer specialized treatment programs at our facility that provides comprehensive treatment for children and adolescents who have intellectual disabilities, as well as care for those who have concerns that come with co-occurring psychiatric conditions.

At our treatment facility, we have been providing quality behavioral healthcare and educational programs to developmentally delayed and emotionally disturbed children and adolescents in the state of Mississippi for over 30 years. Our Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID) is the only private program of its kind in the state that services children and adolescents between the ages of 6 and 21.

What to Expect

Children and adolescents who take part in treatment through our ICF/IID program are provided with consistent, around-the-clock care and monitoring from highly trained and qualified mental health professionals at our treatment facility who make it their sole mission to ensure that all are given every opportunity possible to thrive. With treatment programs at our facility that are highly individualized to meet each and every need that is specific to each of our patients, we strive to help the children and adolescents in our care find an increased sense of self-worth by building their confidence and emphasizing and encouraging the strengths they already possess as they work through our facility’s treatment programs. Activities and therapeutic interventions are developed based solely on each child’s or adolescent’s existing skills set, strengths, and developmental capabilities, so as to ensure success.

Children and adolescents in our ICF/IID program at our treatment facility are offered a vast array of therapeutic and educational programs that are tailored to help them grow behaviorally, emotionally, and academically. School is held at our treatment facility on a daily basis from 9:00am-3: 00 pm with classrooms that are designed using evidence-based practices that incorporate tasks and education that is focused on developing and enhancing skills for daily living. Additionally, daily living skills are taught and reinforced within the home setting as well so as to ensure that children fully develop the tools needed to successfully manage life outside of our treatment facility. Children and adolescents also take part in many community activities at our treatment facility on a regular basis in order to encourage active community integration.
