Dual Diagnosis- Mental Health and Developmental/ Intellectual Disability


Community Reach Center is equipped to help families in the Adams County and Denver-area deal with the challenges they face when they have a child with a dual diagnosis of mental health and developmental/intellectual disability. We understand that your child needs a treatment team that understands how both diagnoses affect your child’s functioning and who can respond in a culturally sensitive manner to get you the support you need. 

Our specialists have advanced training to provide mental health therapy for children ages 2-16 years who have a mental health diagnosis in addition to a developmental/intellectual disability, and their caregivers.

We offer an outpatient level of care consisting of individual, family, and group therapy.  We also provide a more intensive level of care involving multiple hours of treatment per week in your home.  All services are evidence-based and provided in a confidential setting designed to meet the individual needs of your family.

Engaging in child and family counseling can be very beneficial. Your child will feel relieved to have a safe ally to talk with who understands what they are going through. Additionally, therapy will provide your family with the tools needed to help improve communication, target and reward positive behaviors, and find useful resources. We are invested in helping your family and young person succeed.
