Embracing a Vision of Recovery, Resilience, and Self-Determination
Philadelphia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) has integrated its behavioral health care and intellectual disability services into one comprehensive system.
DBHIDS components provide services through a network of agencies while collaborating with the Philadelphia School District, child welfare and judicial systems, and other stakeholders.
Transformation to a recovery orientation in both addictions and mental health becomes possible by focusing on the central role of individuals and families in responding to, managing, and overcoming these serious illnesses. This focus must be an organizing point for the entire system.
We also strive to help people with intellectual disability live self-determined lives in their communities by providing quality supports and services.
