Intellectual Disabilities

Rolling Hills Hospital is proud to offer our community a treatment program that is dedicated to meeting the needs of individuals who are struggling with intellectual disabilities.

At Rolling Hills Hospital, we know that struggling with behavioral, emotional, interpersonal, or adjustment problems in addition to an intellectual disability can lead to the development of very unique and very complex symptoms that require specialized, individualized treatment. In order to meet those needs, a psychiatrist who is experienced in addressing the needs and challenges that those with intellectual disabilities face leads our caring and compassionate clinical staff in providing the most comprehensive treatment available.

Providing specialized care that is tailored to meet each individual’s unique set of needs, the clinical team at Rolling Hills Hospital consists of psychologists, nurses, licensed therapists, social workers, certified nurse aids, mental health technicians, and recreational therapists, as well as other healthcare professionals within the hospital setting.

The primary goal of treatment in this program is to help individuals regain their health in the least amount of time possible so that they may return safely and independently to their home, community, residence, or other treatment setting.

By maintaining our core values of honesty and fairness in every aspect of treatment, the staff at Rolling Hills is dedicated to treating others how we wish to be treated and to providing levels of care in the way that we would want them provided for our own family members. If you or a loved one needs help or guidance in addressing the needs associated with intellectual disabilities compounded by psychiatric concerns, the staff at Rolling Hills Hospital is here for you.
