Intensive Treatment Program

A one of a kind program for dual diagnosed children

OLV Human Services introduced New York State’s first Intensive Treatment Program for youth with disabilities and mental health issues.

Our unique cross-system program provides an elevated level of care not available anywhere else in the area for individuals diagnosed with autism or intellectual disabilities along with a mental health diagnosis. Our ultimate goal is to provide the best continuum of care to return the individuals to their family or own residence.
